October 25: BUDDY
As early as 2006, activist Tarana Burke used the phrase “Me Too” to empower women who had suffered sexual harassment and/or assault by demonstrating how many women have experienced it. In October of 2017 the hashtag went viral in the wake of allegations against Harvey Weinstein. It’s the buddy system writ large. And while it has meant great strides in awareness and policies, we still have the Harasser-in-Chief to deal with.
