With all the evidence out there that Donald Trump has a past of sexually harassing women, and now Harvey Weinstein being accused of using his power to abuse many women in Hollywood, many people are starting to speak out. And, it’s about time! These creeps think they can get away with treating women as second class sexual objects. No one should act this way, especially not out so-called-president!
Ellen DeGeneres just offered her support to the recent “Me Too” movement in order to help raise awareness of sexual harassment and assault. The talk show host spoke powerfully on the meaning of the campaign on Thursday.
“This is not a male thing or a female thing, it is not a Hollywood thing or a political thing. This is a human thing and it happens in the workplace, it happens in families, it happens all over the world and we are all the same,” she said. “We all want the same thing: we want respect and love and kindness.”
DeGeneres discussed the value of reignited a conversation surrounding the topic.
“As hard as this is to talk about, at least we are talking about it,” she said. “It’s not like this is a new thing. This has been going on forever and thanks to being connected to social media, we can see it for what it is and that we are not alone, and hopefully the conversation that we are having now will free all of us. If you are a parent, we can break the cycle and teach our little girls and our little boys that girls should be strong, boys should be kind.
