Although you may not have heard of Tarana Burke her call to action is one that has been unavoidable in recent months. Tarana Burke founded the #MeToo movement which has been the catalyst for revelations, recriminations, and retributions for years of systemic sexual abuse and harassment highlighted by recent high profile cases from within the entertainment industry.
Tarana was born in the Bronx, New York and is a tireless advocate and activist for human and civil rights. As founder of the Me Too Movement, she has had and will continue to have an impact on victims of assault and abuse.
Here at WoK HQ, we talk about what more we can do to help women and girls to speak out against their attackers and abusers and get everyone to understand that they have a responsibility when it comes to abuse. For us there should be no bystanders, we should all stand in solidarity with those people who are brave enough to tell their story and utter the words “Me Too.”
