- There was the woman who said she was assaulted by a man who pretended to work at a local YMCA, and the woman who said she was groped in an elevator by a superior who was almost two decades older. "Sexual harassment and assault in the workplace are not just about Harvey Weinstein".

Today, aged 44 years, the former star of the series Charmed was published on Sunday the following message on his twitter account: "Suggested by a (e) friend (e): if all the women who have been victims of sexual harassment or assault wrote "me too" status, perhaps the people would realize the extent of the problem".

"I wish I could remember who I was before #MeToo", a woman named Rosey wrote. She also notes that, according to Statistics Canada's crime victimization survey, an estimated 460,000 Canadian women were victims of sexual assault in 2004.

Many women in the United States and France appeared to be speaking out for the first time about abuses they had suffered, often saying they had to overcome feelings of shame and embarrassment to do so. As Alexis Benveniste points out, those who posted "Me too" are the only ones to experience harassment.

Thousands of women have followed in her footsteps.

Milano, 44, received "me, too" responses from "Will and Grace" star Debra Messing and Anna Paquin, the Oscar-winning actress from New Zealand.

In a statement on her website, Milano commented on the situation.

The movement started as a response to the more than two dozen women who have accused Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of rape and sexual assault.

"If you are not at the point where you can share your #MeToo I stand with you", Kelly Douglas wrote.

Say you have a father, a brother, a son who can do better. In addition to losing his job and his wife, Weinstein was stripped of his membership in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on Saturday.
