Tweet Analysis by Sydney Richburg #YesAllWomen
#YesAllWomen is a hashtag started on Twitter by the singer Aimee Mann after she reported a personal story on Twitter, “The cops who asked me ‘Well, what were you wearing?’ when I reported an attack and attempted rape. #YesAllWomen”. This hashtag immediately caught momentum with other women sharing similar stories. After doing some research I found that 15 percent of tweets were about rape and domestic violence stories, and 12 percent included workplace and street harassment stories, fully 19 percent were anti-feminist statements against the hashtag (Forbes). #HeForShe is another common hashtag on Twitter in support of feminism. I found a lot of support from men and women.
