Heard: Local women (and men) respond to #MeToo campaign

On Oct. 15, actress Alyssa Milano sent the tweet that would launch hundreds of thousands of tweets, Facebook posts and Instagram posts across the nation about sexual assault and sexual harassment.
The #MeToo movement was previously started by activist Tarana Burke. Milano’s post set it on fire.
This comes at a time when allegations of sexual harassment against film producer Harvey Weinstein are flooding headlines.
The #MeToo posts have been concise, lengthy, sad, incendiary and riddled with the same message: Something needs to change.
The following virtual whispers and shouts of #MeToo come from women — and even men — who live in Charlotte, and from those who have lived here.
And they — and you — are not alone.
