FEMALE CELEBRITIES AGAINST #METOO INCLUDES
FRENCH AUTHOR-CURATOR CATHERINE MILLETS CRAZY REGRETS
2007 Tarana Burke Starts & 2017 Alyssa Milano
Ignites #MeToo Movement
Activist Tarana Burke says she started the “Me Too” campaign back in 2007, long before hashtags. However, the campaign turned into a social media movement earlier this month after actress Alyssa Milano wrote a Twitter post asking followers to share their stories of sexual harassment and assault using the phrase.
THE OPPOSING SIDE OF #METOO
The recent publication in French newspaper, Le Monde, of an open letter by female writers and actors in defense of men’s right to pick up women has left many people bemused. The letter, signed by 100 women including celebrated French actress Catherine Deneuve, said that the #metoo movement had gone too far and that it “chains women to the status of eternal victim”.
Iconic French actress Catherine Deneuve is among 100 women who have signed a public letter blaming the #MeToo anti-harassment movement for creating a “totalitarian” climate that unfairly punishes men for flirting “insistently or clumsily,” infantilizes women and undermines sexual freedom.

“Sexual harassment or flirting – probably determined by whether she liked him. Some of ya’ll flirt on Monday to get what you want then he/she flirts back on Friday and you mad”.
Model and actress Laetitia Casta is the latest French celebrity to join the backlash against the #MeToo movement. She claims it turns women into victims and says she wants nothing to do with it.
Stassi Schroeder was on the receiving end of major backlash after she allegedly criticized the #MeToo campaign with controversial comments. The Vanderpump Rules star, 29, spoke about the victims of Hollywood’s sexual misconduct scandal on her Straight Up with Stassi podcast and some of her listeners were outraged with what they perceived to be insensitive views. The episode titled “Are we on a male witch hunt?” has since been deleted.
It’s never my intention to go and do a podcast that offends anyone or really hurts them. So I was very surprised. So all I can do is apologize and just try to be more mindful and be better moving forward.”
French Writer, Art Critic, Curator
Catherine Millet, the author of the best selling ‘The Sexual Life of Catherine M’, said women should just shout at men who harass them. Catherine Millet, 69, author of a bestselling memoir, and one of the movers behind the open letter by female writers and actors in defense of men’s right to pick up women has left many people bemused. Catherine herself hit back, claiming the campaign to counter sexual harassment was casting women as ‘victims and the fragile prey’ of men.
On December 2017, during an interview on the French radio France Culture she claimed “I really regret not having been raped, because I could show that you can recover from it”
