Victims everywhere have lost their patience and their fear and are finding willing listeners. A question worth asking is: Why now?
Compared to how prevalent sexual harassment is, false claims are rare.
Is there something in the way theatre is organised that makes abuse of power so depressingly commonplace?
The question is less why women are speaking up and more why are they only now being heard?
Companies have long tended to protect rather than punish high-profile harassers. That may change as the #MeToo movement inspires more women to speak out.
A year ago UK universities introduced big changes in the way they deal with harassment. It was an important step, but there's more to do.
Women clergy are still fighting a battle for acceptance in the church.
Thousands of women have shared their experiences of sexual abuse. But, unlike the consciousness raising activities of 1970s feminists, hashtag activism suffers in a space dominated by men.
The virgin martyrs were slaughtered to stop them speaking out, and yet their stories have prevailed.
Women's voices have been seen as unwanted or untruthful, but the snowballing sexual assault revelations from the #MeToo campaign show that women must find their voices.
Women and girls used the #MeToo hashtag more than 12 million times on Facebook in one day in October. It marked the rise of a new feminist consciousness and solidarity.
