Thanks to the campaign #MeToo that has gone viral over the last year among all women of the world.
#MeToo Doctrine & its influence on women
The campaign has pushed the women all around the world to come up with their stories of being sexually harassed at workplace, streets, and even in the school and colleges. Females have started this campaign by using the social media hashtag “Me Too”, which requires telling the real-life stories and the magnitude of sexual assault on women. So, women have got started with the Twitter social messaging app and almost half a million have tweeted Me Too.
“Me Too” hashtag a flashpoint
It has started overnight worldwide once a famous actress Alyssa Milano came into action. She has put allegations of sexual harassment on Hollywood Mogul Harvey Weinstein. Further, she has tweeted on twitter a suggestion that any women who have faced the sexual assault should come up with the story using “Me Too” to spread the campaign to other victims and the magnitude of the problem need to be realized worldwide.

#MeToo beyond the school premises
The #MeToo has influenced thousands of young teens to come up with their real-life stories of being sexually assaulted at schoolyards. The number of teens has tweeted that their fellows have touched their breast and it was not consensual at all. Stats show that hashtag and its companion, #MeToo-k12, young children, and teens have come forward on social media site such as Twitter that they have experienced harassment and assault at their school; the culprits who have involved are young boys, teachers and the people working in the school administration. There is no doubt it is a bitter truth to handle for a young girl studying in the school where children usually attack other children in a disrespectful way. Sexual harassment in schools is very common evil activity and on the other hand, a survey stats shows that they see this type of activity in school as “normal” a part of school life culture. “Students say is it not bog thing because it happens to everyone and on regular basis, a young 13-year-old girl said in the survey in the Midwestern city.
