#HowIWillChange launches in response to #MeToo

In the wake of #MeToo, men around the world are now responding with their own hashtag. 

Writer Benjamin Law took to Twitter in response to the viral hashtag started by actress Alyssa Milano, where woman were asked to tweet #MeToo if they had been sexually harassed or assaulted. 

Law urged men around the world to take a pledge to take action.

"Guys, it's our turn. After yesterday's endless #MeToo stories of women being abused, assaulted and harassed, today we say #HowIWillChange," he wrote on Twitter.

"#HowIWillChange: Recognise I don't need to be a perpetrator to be a bad guy. Questioning harassment, not doing anything about it - all as bad." 

He outlined how he plans to make changes, and other men followed suit.

Meanwhile writer and former friend of Harvey Weinstein Scott Rosenberg has called out Hollywood for its inaction.

He apologised for being one of those people, and called out directors, agents, actors, and other personalities shrinking  away from responsibility in enabling Weinstein's behaviour.

"Everybody f**king knew," he wrote on Facebook. 

"Hollywood's general unwillingness to face the music of personal accountability for the rot in their own industry added insult to injury in the onslaught of allegations. Because those (seemingly) well-meaning yet spineless responses… only ensure one thing: that this will keep happening."

Rosenberg says Hollywood's worst kept secret was enabled by the very people that work in it. 

"No one wants to bite the hand that feeds them caviar in St. Barth's."

"And do you know how I am sure this is true? Because I was there," Rosenberg writes. "I saw you. All of you. God help me, I was there with you."
