Actress Alyssa Milano has started the #MeToo social media campaign, showing women they aren't the only individuals facing sexual assault and harassment. The campaign went viral, generating thousands of responses, retweets, likes, giving a supreme sense of magnitude to the problem.

Australian journalist and screenwriter Benjamin Law has created the hashtag #HowIWillChange in response to Milano's effort. He used it as a tool to publicly announce his support and to commit to change against the culture of sexual violence.

The act of sharing devastating #MeToo stories on social media shook the public, highlighting how many women have had similar experiences. Eventually, as the flood of these messages continued, women started asking men what are they going to do to address the situation. Law's #HowIWillChange is just what everyone needed. It will give voice to all who want to stand up. "I will never blame a victim," one guy wrote. "I will keep showing my 3 sons and one grandson how to honor and respect women," said the other.

On Sunday I asked my father when was the last time he catcalled a woman. He looked me dead in the eye and said never. I asked him why. He told me his father had told him to not do that to a woman. My father is just short of his 88th birthday. He has always been a beacon of integrity, honour and honesty and calling a spade a spade. He is not and was not perfect. He is one of the finest human beings I know. I love you dad. I thank you for being a father to this crazy daughter.

I have taught my son how to respect women. He is only 15 and I am so proud of how he steps up daily to tell other teens to knock it off when they are cat calling, touching, teasing the young girls.

Please, do. I don't seem to be taken seriously, or even heard, by those who make such statements.

Not blaming the victim is so important.
