Share your Bristol #MeToo sexual harassment or assault encounters

File Photo

Social media is flooded with messages mostly from women who are tagging their profiles with #MeToo to indicate that they have been sexually harassed or assaulted.

On Sunday actress Alyssa Milano tweeted a note that read “Suggested by a friend: If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote “Me too” as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem.”

“If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet,” she wrote.

That’s all it took. The movement has now taken a life of its own.

With so much talk and discussion about sexual harassment in Bristol by Mayor Cockayne, I though this would be a good way to locally share your encounter(s).

You can share them on Facebook or on our anonymous comments section at the bottom of this story, You can also privately start healing and when ready, share your sexual harassment incident (s). I encourage everyone to contact the police if you are ready to do so.
