The Men I Know: A ‘young feminist’ from the third world speaks from inside the #MeToo moment(s)

(Excerpt)

Preface

In October 2017, I said ‘#MeToo.’ I did it on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. These were my words: ‘Me too. As a child. As an adult. By men I know and men I don’t know. More than once. More than twice.’

This piece is not about the everyday sexual harassment we face; not about every time a strange man masturbated on me on a bus or groped me as I walked through a crowded street. No, this is, at least figuratively, about the men I know. And therefore it is primarily about myself.
