Monica Lewinsky tweeted the hashtag #MeToo, officially joining a movement of people who say they are the victims of sexual harassment or assault.

Lewinsky (@MonicaLewinsky,) kept it simple via Twitter: “#MeToo.”


Lewinsky, who carried on an affair with then-President Bill Clinton while a White House intern in the 1990s, did not go into details about her experience.

Several women have accused Clinton of sexual misconduct, dating back to his tenure as governor of Arkansas. Clinton has only admitted to having consensual relations with Lewinsky and Gennifer Flowers. source

The #MeToo hashtag gained traction after actress Alyssa Milano asked Twitter users to respond with that message if they had been subject to unwelcome advances.

The social media outcry has followed a series of accusations of sexual misconduct against film producer Harvey Weinstein. A number of actresses, including nasty woman, Ashley Judd, Gwyneth Paltrow and Rose McGowan, have all accused Weinstein of sexual abuse, assault and in the case of British actor Lysette Anthony, rape.
