In 2006, civil rights activist Tarana Burke (@taranajaneen), now 45, founded what would become the #MeToo movement to support survivors of sexual violence, particularly young women of color from low-wealth communities. Burke was among the men and women named Time Person of the Year in 2017, collectively called “the silence breakers.” When asked if there is “advice that somebody gave you that really helped guide you in all this?” she answered: “The best advice I got when I was young was that I was powerful. Now. That there was nothing I had to do, or change, or become, to be powerful. And the advice I give is: Just do the work. There’s no shortcuts. If #MeToo didn’t go viral last October, I would still be marching around with my little “me too” T-shirt on and trying to get people to talk about it, trying to make a difference.” (photo by KK Ottesen for @washingtonpost)
WE EXPOSED HIM
THEY EXCUSED HIM
Fuck the studios and executives for continuing to employ / keeping a violent serial sexual predator on their sets around young industry women/girls whom he targets. Fuck all those who know and work with him for their continued silence and bystanding. Fuck you assholes who once called me your friend but chose to side with him. Fuck you bullies who make threats, harass, intimidate and frighten us. Fuck the system that not only fails victims and survivors but also shames, humiliates, blames and re-traumatizes survivors of rape, sexual assault and abuse. Fuck you Robert for denying the sickness you have and pain you have caused. You've had so many chances to redeem yourself and give truth to your victims. FUCK YOU. ---By the way, I can feel hurt by/be angry at men who attack and violate me... yet still allow myself to laugh, have fun and appreciate the good things life has to offer... I won't be your "perfect victim"

Margaret Fuller (1810-1850) was an American writer, a women’s rights activist, and was associated with the Transcendentalist movement.
Fuller was an influential early feminist whose writings had a profound impact on later women suffrage campaigners, such as Susan B. Anthony.
“She possessed more influence on the thought of American women than any woman previous to her time.” Olympe de Gouges (1755-1793) was a French writer, revolutionary and feminist. Born Marie Gouze in southern France, de Gouges was the daughter of a semi-literate butcher. Noted for her beauty, at the age of 16 de Gouges was forced into an arranged marriage with a much older man. She loathed this situation but escaped from it a year later when her husband died. In 1770 she moved to Paris and indulged her passions for writing and political discussion, attending several notable salons and mixing with the likes of Jacques Brissot and Marquis Condorcet. De Gouges’ politics were moderate, reformist and feminist: she supported a constitutional monarchy rather than a republic; she wanted no harm to come to the king; and, above all, she sought improvements in the rights and conditions of women. She is best known for a political pamphlet titled Declaration of the Rights of Woman, a feminist polemic released in September 1791. She later criticised the National Convention for its failure to lead and facilitate public debate, a move that brought her to the attention of Maximilien Robespierre and the Committee of Public Safety. Considered an annoyance to the state rather than an explicit threat, de Gouges was arrested in July 1793 and sent to trial. She was eventually guillotined in November 1793. #victimsabroad#abuse .#hope#IVAC#metoo#domesticviolence#survivor#bestrong#dontbeafraid#ivac#victimsabroad#courage#sexualassault#behappy#happy#happyness#nevergiveup#staystrong#IVAC#victimsabroad#victim#strongwomen#strength#bestrong#survivor#sextrafficking#metoo#takeaction#makeachange#takeastand#breakthrcycle#timesup#silencebreakers#loveshouldnthurt#abuse#speakout#takeaction#haveavoice
Each new chapter of your life comes with new mistakes and each old chapter you have ever lived you make mistakes in because you are only human... There will always be those that will keep track of your every mistake that you ever make and laugh at you and say “KARMA” It’s life and I am trying my best to block this certain person out of my life and head because he is causing me so much grief because he basically “defamed” me to gain more “fame” for himself because that’s what certain “James Deans” types of guys will do to girls to minimize them in this world for their own self worth and basically make them selves BIGGER and feel better about themselves. TBH I am drained from all of this and this dude has definitely made me Queen of crazy town but I’m sick and tired of staying silent. I keep hoping that he will one day leave me alone in person and online. #silencebreaking#silencebreakers#mistakes#mistakesarelessons#growingpains2018

#sexualharassment in #frenchfilmindustry : #francis_renaud#frenchactor#silencebreakers : "En attendant sa rencontre bénie avec #OlivierMarchal , il essuie les déconvenues. Il raconte dans son autobiographie qu'un «superdirecteur» de casting en vue sur la place de Paris lui dit clairement que s'il n'accepte pas de «coucher», il n'obtiendra pas de rôle. Il en profite pour lui caresser la cuisse de sa «grosse main»: «Francis, le droit de cuissage, ça existe. Pour réussir, il faut coucher», assène-t-il (p.160). Incorruptible, doit dans ses bottes, l'acteur sera «black-listé» plusieurs années.
Par la suite, Francis Renaud ignorera les avances d'#AndréTéchiné «perturbé» par son charisme et celles de son assistant (p. 194-195) et se retiendra de frapper #CatherineBreillat : elle l'avait poussé à bout en l'obligeant à «jouer» une scène de sexe qui n'était pas prévue dans le scénario de Parfait amour (p.2014). «Ils savent que je sais... Je comprends mieux les suicides de certains acteurs, le milieu ne pardonne pas, il vous écrase, vous méprise...», déplore Francis Renaud.
Par bonheur, il a également fait de belles rencontres. Outre Olivier Marchal qui l'engage dans tous ses polars (Gangster, MR73, Les Lyonnais,...), Yves Montand qui lui a signé un autographe, Jacques Demy «disponible», Luc Besson en train de tourner un clip de Mylène Farmer devant lequel il perd sa voix, Isabelle Adjani, Gérard Depardieu, Burt Lancaster dans Le Fantôme de l'Opéra, Georges Lautner ou Jeanne Moreau (il pousse son fauteuil roulant dans La vieille qui marchait dans la mer)."
This is my newest series, Silence. Created in response to Kavanaugh’s recent hearings and appointment to the Supreme Court of the United States. Prints available.
A Message to Survivors:
So often we feel silenced, suffocated by the secrets we keep. In a time of rapidly changing views on sexual assault, I feel we have gone backwards. The Kavanaugh Hearings were a mudslide down the hill of progress, and like many others, I was outraged.
As the world bickered on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter about the allegations and the credibility of both parties, we saw the worst in people. Disgust, hatred, and anger were directed towards Dr. Ford for doing nothing but coming forward, triggering survivors all over the country. The lack of respect and empathy towards her and her accounts rippled through our society. My husband worked extra hours on the local rape crisis center’s hotline. They were overloaded with calls.
We live in a time when the victim’s voice is ignored. Disclosures of abuse are often followed with questions that begin with, “but why..”. “But why would they do that to you?” (As if you know the logical reason)
“But why are you coming forward so soon/late?” (As if there is a better time)
“But why were you wearing that/walking there/dating them?” (As if it was your fault)
“But why don’t you remember more details?” (As if the memory of the trauma isn’t enough)
These questions are the strands of yarn that silence us, binding our words to our bodies.

I’m inspired to talk a bit about the love and passion I have for what we are doing at our #Nonprofit @essensha_ ...it’s beyond what I can put into words!
Born from death like the Phoenix, my dad’s suicide brought this @iahsaymovement of love to life. The actions we will be taking are close to my heart as we take a stand to put a stop to the vast amount of silenced #domesticviolence , #suicide , rape , victimization , #trauma , #bullying - and much more.
Yesterday was #UnityDay2018 which inspires hope! So join us in our first of many Monthly IAHSAY Days in the one of a kind #Phoenix Arizona this November 10th as we move forward with our movement at our next event where items and food will be accepted as donations as we share in our experiences, laugh together, and be our #human selves while getting photos taken to spread the word!! 😍👫👭👬👯♀️👯♂️

It’s been a rollercoaster year of emotions, triggers from the past & lessons of resiliency for all of us. #silencebreakers Telling the world what happened to me in 2003 was the most difficult thing that I have done in my life. There is no preparation for the intense months that would follow. I’ve decided that I am ready to address those who have harassed and threatened me & my family for months. This video isn’t for them, it’s for me. I have a right to stick up for myself & say my piece without stooping to the same lows that they have. I don’t hide behind fake accounts, I do this out in the open. The video will be release today at 4:30pm PST on my channel. #metoo#storytime#stopabuse#1yearlater
Earlier this year, #FOSS @brockcpcf faculty and student experts presented “Pressing for Progress: Women, Hollywood and #MeToo .” On the same day, the Centre for Women’s and Gender Studies presented a series of events to draw attention to missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls - part of International Women’s Day events at #BrockU . On Monday, #BrockU welcomes a key figure in the #MeToo movement, Tarana Burke, an American civil rights activist often credited with starting the #MeToo movement. 👏
