#METOO IS ONE YEAR OLD

October 19, 2018

The #METOO movement is one year old.

 

It is a movement against sexual harassment and assault.

The #METOO hashtag is used on social media to demonstrate the widespread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment women endure too frequently.

 

I strongly feel it is so much more than that. It is a strong resilience process that started. Women are showing to the world their resilience capacities.

 

1. Sorority: This digital hashtag enables women to connect (digitally) with each other in support for each other. It is the pillar number one of Resilience: Seek and get support.

 

2. Deal with Shame: By talking publicly under the #METOO flag, every single individual who faced and overcame the shame from sexual assault is dealing with it. It is pillar number two of Resilience.

 

3. Tell your story: Most hashtag has been accompanied by a description of facts or a story. Being able to articulate what happened is the pillar number 3 of Resilience. Words heal.

 

Is the world ready to listen to these stories and trigger a true societal change?

I am curious....hopefully curious. One year is too young to draw a conclusion.
