The founder of the #MeToo movement, Tarana Burke, spoke at the University of Nevada, Reno Joe Crowley Student Union on Wednesday. She shared the story behind the inspiration for the movement, which now aims to help survivors of sexual abuse and assault. The movement also aims to inspire solidarity toward victims. While Burke has dedicated many years toward this movement, #MeToo gained popularity in 2017, after several stories of assault and harassment surfaced in the film industry.
