During the autumn of 2017 the #metoo movement started in the USA and quickly spread across the whole world. This was a unique historical happening in which women, non-binary and transgender people joined together in a structured way to tell about their experiences of sexual harassment and sexual violence. The stories from the movement’s messages show that there is still a lot to be done to prevent and fight against sexual harassment and sexual violence in both workplaces and society at large.
