The goal of #MeToo, as Milano’s friend told her, was simply to give people a sense of “the magnitude of the problem.”
Over the last day, I’ve seen the MeToo status pop up, without an explanation. But after seeing it multiple times from some of my female friends, I understood quickly what this was about. In the last 24h, the status has been tweeted 500 thousand times already. Think of the gravity of the situation.
