Women in Singapore are saying #MeToo

“Me too. More than 10 times, in broad daylight, at night, strobe light; alone, in the company of friends, strangers; in cities, college towns, deserted islands untouched by running water but not by misogyny; within eyeshot, earshot, the crosshairs of CCTV,” wrote Amanda Chong, lawyer and poet, on Facebook.

Chong is one of many women in Singapore posting their stories of sexual harassment and assault on social media, along with women in the United States and around the world.

This online movement began on Monday (October 15) when actress Alyssa Milano called upon Twitter users to post “Me too” if they’ve had an experience with sexual assault and harassment.
