It’s no secret that women all over the world are taking center stage with the current #MeToo movement. Whether the sexual assault that they experienced occurred recently or years before, women are finally vocalizing their outrage and pain.
Without a doubt, this movement has the power to unify women and potentially bridge the gap of communication that we failed to create on our own. However, is it possible for a movement so full of promise, freedom, and deliverance to be at risk of abuse itself?
There are women who are currently guilty of using this movement to either gain attention or harm the innocent. It’s no secret that men have been accused of rape from women who later confessed that they lied. If this is so, then the power and momentum that the #MeToo movement has gained can easily turn empowerment into powerless for the new victims it will produce.
