Kerry Washington, Lena Dunham + More Join #YesAllWomen Campaign With Tweets
Celebrities are using the hashtag #YesAllWomen to raise awareness that all women are affected by misogyny.
The Twitter campaign started and gained momentum after it was revealed that Elliot Rodger, the man behind the killing spree in Santa Barbara on Friday, wrote a manifesto promising revenge on women.
“You girls have never been attracted to me,” Rodger said in a YouTube video. “I don’t know why you girls aren’t attracted to me, but I will punish you all for it.”
Roger killed six people before taking his own life, sparking the online conversation about the dangers of misogyny.
