Men are taking responsibility for their actions and lending their support to the #MeToo movement

The Rape Crisis Center in Myrtle Beach said it was initially concerned because of fear this movement could cause people to open up when they aren't ready.

"We talk about how many women were raped previous year, not about how many men raped women", Katz said.

The viral movement also comes in the wake of the reports about former film producer Harvey Weinstein's years of alleged sexual harassment and assault cases against young women in Hollywood.

She also added that if anybody has been sexually harassed then they can reply to her tweet using '#MeToo'.

Days after a the #MeToo tweet was posted, thousands of men and women continue to speak out against sexual assault and sexual harassment. As she attempted to talk to me that day though the look in her eyes sent me in the other direction.

"It's probably not likely", Jacob said. With the #MeToo movement, "I wanted to take the focus off the predator and put it back on the victim". From those anxious that the conversation could lead to witch hunts to women calling for fewer hashtags and more change, everyone seems to have joined the discussion.

"There's still such a stigma behind it", she said. "There has to be a cultural change".

The thing that really surprised me was what felt like an outpouring of men actually listening. They ended up thanking him for raising the bar of how men should respond to being a part of a culture of harassment.

"We've reached a tipping point where we've moved beyond individual harassers ... and individual victims who call out the harassers to a social phenomenon, a social movement where women are saying "me too" and you're starting to recognize the magnitude of this problem", Berdahl said.

"It takes peer pressure sometimes and this is incredibly encouraging", Jacob said. Simply declaring "Me, too" helps eat away at the silence on which such predatory behavior always depends. Women seethe while men mansplain and continue to chomp down their dinner with noisy punctuations about how they're right.

"I was just a child at the time", Debbie Tye said.

In the meantime, she hopes more victims will come forward to get help and raise awareness. "And there are countless others who are unsurprised at the vast number of people in their lives who share this experience".

At Harold's House, they say they believe education about who's safe for you starts at home. In some cases, it's a person the assault victim thought they knew. More importantly, it makes room for action that's not stemmed in blame or in Hallmark greeting cards of empathy.

And just because someone remains silent on the topic doesn't mean she or he is unaffected.

"Yesterday and today, we found Facebook and Twitter full of the MeToo hashtag, which exposes the shocking number of women who have been subject to sexual harassment", began the Kolkata Police statement. Several videos created by online users depict how women can walk a busy street and receive multiple sexual comments, which may be interpreted as sexual harassment.
