This editorial recognizes that hardly a day has passed since the accusations of sexual harassment against US film producer Harvey Weinstein in October 2017 without a new allegation being made. Within days after the first accusations against Weinstein appeared in the media, women who had had similar experiences began to use the #MeToo platform to tell their story. Since then #MeToo has become a global phenomenon, spreading globally. This editorial explores some of the concerns about #MeToo and, more generally, feminist responses to the problem of sexual harassment and sexual violence.
