Alyssa Milano was in bed with her two young children when a friend of a friend on Facebook suggested something that struck her as a great way to elevate the Harvey Weinstein conversation.By Monday night, over 53,000 people had left comments and thousands of women had declared "Me Too," sharing their stories of rape, sexual assault and harassment across social media, including some for the first time.Milano said the idea was to elevate the Harvey Weinstein conversation, placing the emphasis on victims rather than perpetrators and offering a glimpse into the number of women who continue to be victimized. The disgraced film mogul has been accused by more than three dozen women of harassment or abuse.A longtime women's activist, the 60-year-old Taylor founded a training organization 20 years ago called Defend Yourself, helping women learn "empowerment defense" to ward off physical and emotional attacks in all aspects of their lives.Martha Armstrong, 69, in Wilmington, North Carolina, knows that firsthand, speaking out on social media for the first time about a range of assault and harassment spanning decades.Milano said she has a "Me Too" story as well, but she chose not to share it at this time, hoping to put the focus on others.
