In the wake of the "Me Too" movement and the sexual harassment and assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein and many others, U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., shared her own experience with sexual harassment to inspire other women on Capitol Hill to do the same. According to Speier, sexual harassment is a major issue in the halls of Congress, but very few people are talking about it.
If you have accounts on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, chances are you've heard of the "Me Too" social media movement. The movement quickly went viral after actress Alyssa Milano shared it on Twitter. So far, the movement has reached millions of people in at least 85 countries. According to Twitter, almost 2 million tweets included the #MeToo hashtag.
