(CNN) — ‘Me too.’
Ever since the allegations against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein surfaced, those two simple words have become a rallying cry.
Women — and some men — have used them to share personal stories of sexual harassment and assault.
The hashtag caught fire over the weekend when actress Alyssa Milano tweeted a call-out to victims “so we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem.”
But the online movement didn’t start with Milano on Sunday. It started more than 10 years ago with activist Tarana Burke.
“It’s not about a viral campaign for me,” she told CNN on Tuesday. “It’s about a movement.”
And that movement began — as she put it — in the “deepest, darkest place in my soul.”
