Since last fall, many people (mostly women) have come forward with their stories of harassment and sexual assault. The topic is still getting a lot of attention in the media and for weeks we have been hearing people speak out both in favour of and against the movement. It is therefore crucial that we continue the fight against sexual violence.
In response to the #MeToo movement, a group of Quebec feminists launched a new campaign called #Etmaintenant (#AndNow). These women believe that “ … the #MeToo movement has been beneficial. The ideas and dialogue began on a positive note in private and in public. Many women and men see it as a sign of hope. It is not about victimization but rather about finally showing strength.”
