Teen girls want to address sexual harassment where it begins: in middle and high school.
“Nobody is ever just a refugee,” Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie told the crowd Friday at the Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Symposium and Prize Ceremony. “Nobody is ever just anything. Nobody has a single story.” No movement does, either, which Adichie opened up to Ms. about backstage after her address.
Today marks the second anniversary of the viral explosion of Tarana Burke’s #MeToo movement—and she marked the occasion by launching the #MeTooVoter online campaign calling on political leaders to address sexual harassment and design solutions for safer workplaces.
The editors of Ms. compiled some of the best coverage on the topic of #MeToo. Some will inspire you; some might enrage you. But, more importantly, we hope it recommits you to the fight of our lifetimes and those of the trailblazers before us: the fight for equality, for safety and for the right to exist in this world as boldly and bravely as ever.

Nearly two years after the viral tweets about #MeToo, we are now at an ideal time to take stock of the progress we’ve made and what breakthrough moments are yet to come. That’s exactly what this year’s National Sexual Assault Conference was designed to make possible.
News of Weinstein’s probable escape from justice propels me back to my own assault—to my hours on the witness stand, to the moment 12 people told me with their verdict we don’t believe you.
I did not believe that I had suffered an assault. I thought I had been privy to my very own “Lolita” story.
