You know the movement, but you might not know her name.
Social activist Tarana Burke, 44, is is the founder of the #MeToo social media movement, where survivors of sexual assault either marked themselves as such online, or told their stories. And while she has already affected millions of people across the internet and beyond, she'll have a chance to once again touch lives as she hits the button that drops the Times Square New Year's Eve ball.
“2018 is really going to be about re-centering the conversation around survivors,” Burke said in an interview with The New York Daily News. “#MeToo has been powerful, it's been global, it’s seen so much happen in a short period of time.”
Burke actually founded the movement in 2007, but it really picked up steam in late 2017.
