Thousands participated in the #MeToo March on Sunday, November 12, walking down Hollywood Boulevard in light of the recent sexual allegations that have surfaced in the entertainment industry. Marchers held banners and signs reading “Unite to Fight Patriarchy” and “Me Too!” to voice their solidarity with victims of sexual violence. Survivors also gave speeches recounting their own experiences. The #MeToo movement began in October when actress Alyssa Milano, following allegations against producer Harvey Weinstein, sent out a tweet inviting women who had been sexually harassed or assaulted to write “me too” as a status. Facebook reported that 12 million posts, comments and reactions were recorded within 24 hours of the tweet. Credit: Twitter/steadyjenny via Storyful
