Celine Cooper: Me too, and let's stop acting surprised

Celine Cooper: Me too, and let's stop acting surprised

The protest took place after McGowan was temporarily suspended from the platform amidst the Harvey Weinstein shitstorm.

After the return of Harvey Weinstein's studio, the public comments of major actors against the methods of the famous american producer and the launch of the hashtag "BalanceTonPorc " in the Hexagon, the case of Weinstein comes to cause a new result: the launch, by the actress Alyssa Milano, the hashtag "Me too" ( "Me too ").

Another response made the unfortunate but all too true claim that "women who've "only" been harassed, not assaulted, consider ourselves lucky".

Women came out openly discussing the odds they went through with "Me too" over their statuses as actress Milano suggested the idea on Twitter on Sunday.

She shared a note from a friend, which read, "If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote, "Me too" as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem".

The government said at least 1,066 people have been killed, including 822 militants and 162 government forces. He said the battle for Marawi could be over imminently, adding that 17 hostages were rescued this morning.


It all started with a tweet from popular star Alyssa Milano.

Milano starred in Charmed with actress Rose McGowan, who was one of the first actresses to be named as an alleged victim of Weinstein.

The post has more than 38,000 replies, including several high-profile actresses like Debra Messing and Anna Paquin.

"It's taken me 13 years to say #MeToo".

In the UK, Labour MP Stella Creasy also tweeted the words.

Girl dies after falling in cruise ship at PortMiami
The girl was taken in a critical condition to the Ryder Trauma Centre, about three miles away from the port, but she died. It's unclear what led to the fall, and homicide investigators are now looking into the incident.


Milano spoke out against Weinstein on her website, Patriot not Partisan, on October 9, four days after the New York Times story was published.

She added that, "to the women who have suffered any form of abuse of power, I stand beside you".

Last week Milano wrote an essay for PatriotNotPartisan.com that said giving a statement on Weinstein was "complicated" for her for "personal reasons".

"Just as I did after the #Trump tapes, I'm having flashbacks due to the Harvey Weinstein assault & rape allegations. Men who undermine women and their strength, ability and intelligence exist everywhere".
