The Explosion of the #YesAllWomen Movement on Twitter

Anyone who hasn’t been living under a rock has heard about the sickening murder rampage that occurred in Santa Barbara, California by a man with a grudge against not one woman, but all women. This senseless and tragic occurrence, however, has brought out the voice of women everywhere.

The Twitter hash tag #YesAllWomen started as a simple tweet and has exploded into a trending phenomenon where women, and even men, are voicing their opinions and outrages of what women shouldn’t have to, but do deal with. Thousands have joined the conversation and are, in a way, standing together with one voice for change. The following are just some examples of the tweets that have come pouring in in response to Elliot Rodger’s heinous acts and the trending hash tag:

Our society is constantly riddled with hate and tragedy. Unfortunately, sometimes it takes a tragedy for complete strangers to band together with a voice for change. Even though it is a shame that this kind of horrific act is what it takes to get people together, it is still no less inspiring that these people have in fact joined together.

 

 

What’s even more inspiring and heart-warming is that the #YesAllWomen movement has inspired good men everywhere to speak up. The hash tag #AllMenCan, a movement where photos of men speaking out against misogyny is displayed, has spawned from the #YesAllWomen movement in support of women and their struggle. These are men who believe that men can step up and stop objectifying women and treat them as equals. These are men that aren’t afraid to be feminists and aren’t worried about their masculinity being threatened. These are real men.

I know it may be cliché, but in this case it is appropriate… be part of the solution, not part of the problem because…
