We’re not alone in wondering why the hashtag is so popular with women’s rights advocates.
The hashtag has become such a rallying cry that #MeStrong is a trending topic on Twitter.
The movement is not limited to women’s organizations and activists, either, and it is also being used by men’s rights activists to highlight the issues faced by men.
“I think it is a good idea to start a conversation on men’s issues,” says Joanna Ochs, a feminist writer who is an author and activist.
Women’s issues are largely ignored by mainstream media because they are largely invisible to the general public. “
Men’s issues aren’t being talked about in mainstream media, so there needs to be more awareness of this.”

The gender gap is also largely invisible, Ochsen says.
People are afraid to talk. “
There is a great stigma around this topic.
People are afraid to talk.
There is this notion that we’re a bunch of selfish, angry, entitled women who need to shut up about men’s violence.”
Men’s issues often fall under the umbrella of domestic violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment and discrimination, according to the National Domestic Violence Hotline.
In 2017, the National Sexual Assault Hotline received more than 3,000 calls and received more-than 2,000 anonymous calls to its hotline from men, according an analysis by The Huffington Post.
There are also signs that men are taking note of the movement.
“When you look at men’s and women’s issues, men’s voices are usually marginalized and underrepresented,” Ochsi says.
Women’s voices, in fact, have been marginalized and overrepresented in recent decades.
The number of women in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) occupations has decreased since the 1960s, and men have been more likely to get those jobs, according a study by the Brookings Institution.
Women still make up just 23% of the general population in the United States, but they make up 50% of those in STEM.
“Women’s issues were underrepresented in the early ’90s and they have been overrepresented over the last decade,” Ocha says.
As a result, women are often underrepresented within groups like the United Nations and other international bodies.
In a 2016 report, the UN’s Inter-Parliamentary Union found that women in leadership roles in international organizations like the UN are not respected or celebrated.
“They’re often overlooked, and their voices are not heard, and there’s a feeling that men have no voice,” Ochns says.
Ochso says the hashtag campaign is a new opportunity for the movement to be heard.
“If you talk to a lot women, you see a lot men are being vocal about their issues,” she says.
“I think this is a really good opportunity for women to say, ‘We’re not the only ones suffering from these issues.’
And I think that is what will be driving the next wave of women to get involved.”
The movement has been growing rapidly over the past two years, with a surge in activity since the election of Donald Trump.
Ocha believes it will continue to grow as the country moves into the new year.
“It’s really about the next election,” she said.
The campaign is also a way to connect with people who may not be able to speak on a national level. “
What is happening in the world is really impacting our society, and so the #mesafe movement is a way for us to be part of that.”

Ochno says that the hashtag can be a good way to reach out to women who might not have access to Twitter.
“You can reach out and be authentic, and you can say, I’ve got some stories you can share, and I’m here to listen to you,” she explains.
“Some of the most interesting conversations about men are happening in women’s spaces.
It’s a really powerful thing to be able and open up to someone who may be a little hesitant to open up.”
Ochser’s experience has been particularly valuable for her.
“In 2016, I went into a women’s prison and I thought, I’m really going to have to make an issue out of this.
I was not going to let it go.
But when I walked out, I was still so touched by what had happened, and what they had been through, and how they were trying to navigate their lives,” Oechs says, adding that she also wants to see more men in leadership positions.
“Maybe we’re not going the right
