Meet the Woman Who Started #MeToo 10 Years Ago

Following allegations of sexual harassment and abuse against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, actor Alyssa Milano called on social media users to speak up if they were survivors of sexual harassment or assault. Women across the world — including McKayla Maroney, Anna Paquin and Debra Messing — shared their experiences and #MeToo soon started trending.

But while many credited Milano with launching the movement, it was actually started a decade ago by Tarana Burke.
