17. #MeToo Movement
Though originally started by activist Tarana Burke years ago, the #MeToo movement, aimed to condemn sexual harassment, made a major revival when actress Alyssa Milano encouraged women to post the hashtag on social media to demonstrate the severity of this widespread issue. Since then, millions of people have posted the hashtag and have come forward with their stories, many of them celebrities. The movement triggered a snowball effect with an outpouring of accusations against prominent figures in Hollywood, politics, and more.
