The world would split open.

About the project

“I know exactly how you feel. That happened to me too.” – Tarana Burke, Originator of Me Too

Few topics have generated as much awareness of sexual assault than the movement, Me Too. What started as a simple statement of empathy from one survivor to another is changing how the world is listening to survivors of sexual violence, assault and harassment.

In recognition of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Google Trends data was used to create a visualization of Google Search interest in “MeToo” over time. This data represents global trends of people searching for the movement from the top 300 searching cities every day. (The cities most searching for “MeToo” are cities with the highest proportion of search interest in “MeToo”, relative to all searches made in the city in the given time period—October 1, 2017 - the present day.)

Although global awareness of sexual assault and harassment is a crucial first step, awareness alone cannot fix the problem. To learn more or get help, please go to sexual assault resources.
