On Sunday, Twitter came up with the #MeToo hashtag for women (and men) to have a place to share their experiences being sexually assaulted or harassed. In fact, Dana Loesch shared an epic thread on the hashtag, but what also garnered our attention was a simple tweet from Monica Lewinsky:
— Monica Lewinsky (@MonicaLewinsky) October 16, 2017
Monica was responding to this:
To all the women sharing stories of sexual assault and sexual harassment, thank you for your bravery to speak up. You are not alone. #MeToo

Is it childish of us to hope Hillary saw Monica’s tweet? Or even Bill?
And to think, this website is FREE!
I've always felt an anger for all you went through at such a young age. Because #metoo I'm sorry. Be well.

Speak up and speak out. So much smarter than Alyssa Milano’s #WomenBoycottTwitter nonsense where they were protesting being silenced by being silent. Yeah, that was a stellar message.
Interestingly enough, Monica received support from both sides of the aisle for this tweet.

Monica. I hope that you will not be forever scourged because of what happened when you were at the @WhiteHouse.

Well done, Twitter.
