Schools are supposed to be safe havens for students of all ages. Unfortunately for some, they have become places where they are sexually harassed and assaulted. The #MeToo social media campaign for women included many incidences from current and former students who have been victimized in a school setting. The purpose of the #MeToo campaign is to empower women and remind them that they should not be embarrassed to share their stories. Many adults noted that they still felt guilty about not reporting the events when they happened. They worry that they gave more power to their perpetrator to hurt additional victims.
