Long before the New York Times released their bombshell expose on Harvey Weinstein, one woman coined the words that would spark a revolution both on and offline.

Though not initially credited with its founding, activist Tarana Burke launched the Me Too campaign in 2007 for her non-profit Just Be Inc., which helps survivors of everything from sexual harassment to assault. Her upcoming memoir Where the Light Enters: The Founding of the ‘Me Too.’ Movement (slated for an early 2019 release) will explore what this unprecedented moment means for the millions of women she inspired to speak out.
