The #MeToo campaign began as a response to sexual assault allegations that have filled news headlines in america recently. The words me too actually go back ten years ago when Tarana Burke started a similar campaign. The idea then was to start a conversation that provided empowerment through empathy. The more recent campaign has been to draw attention to the sheer number of people who have been affected by sexual assault. Sue Paton (Pay-ton) of the Drug and Alcohol Practitioner’s Association of Aotearoa NZ sez people with addiction have been particularly impacted by sexual abuse and other childhood trauma. Lillian Hanly spoke with her about the campaign.
