Actress Alyssa Milano promoted the #MeToo campaign over the weekend following the multiple allegations of sexual assault levelled at Harvey Weinstein in recent weeks.

Posting to Twitter, Milano wrote, “‘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’.”
