    Like the “problem that has no name,” the disquieting malaise of frustration and repression among postwar wives and homemakers identified by Betty Friedan more than 50 years ago, this moment is borne of a very real and potent sense of unrest. Yet it doesn’t have a leader, or a single, unifying tenet. The hashtag #MeToo (swiftly adapted into #BalanceTonPorc, #YoTambien, #Ana_kaman and many others), which to date has provided an umbrella of solidarity for millions of people to come forward with their stories, is part of the picture, but not all of it.

    I love this so much. Even though it’s sad that “silence breakers” have to exist in the first place, I’m glad their voices are now being heard.

    The amount of white men claiming these women were too late on the Facebook posts of my local newspaper is gross.
