Women Empowerment in the Age of the #MeToo Movement
When the #MeToo Movement arrived following accusations made against Hollywood Mogul Harvey Weinstein, an avalanche of accusations fell down upon the heads of male celebrities, CEOs, and executives who occupied positions of power and used those positions to either ask for sexual favors from women subordinates or pushed themselves onto unsuspecting or unwilling participants for sexual favor. Women across the Internet began to hashtag their Twitter responses with #MeToo to show their solidarity with other women who had been made the victims of sexual assault. It was widely viewed as a movement towards the empowerment of women, as they were using their voices to be heard and to challenge a system in which men used their power to subordinate women in a demeaning and non-consensual manner (Ralph).

Women have, for a long time, been expected to fulfill certain roles. These roles varied through the ages but have remained rooted in their main objective, to have women raise children and assist and serve their husbands (Vishwanathan, 1994, p. 34). Women are seen as the ones who stay home, tend the hearth, and raise the young while men are the ones that earn the money, own the property, and control the household. In literature, women are depicted often as fulfilling these stereotypical roles and also rebelling against them. Karen Van Der Zee's "A Secret Sorrow" and Gail Godwin's "A Sorrowful Woman" are two works of literature that demonstrate the lives of women who belonged to a society that required them to conform to their selected role.

In the essay entitled, "oman identified woman," the organization Radicalesbians discusses the crucial issue of identifying women as reinforces of the perpetuation of oppression in human society. This means that prejudice and oppression against women cannot be eliminated nor gradually lessened, primarily because women will always act against the interest of their own sector. However, it is important to bear in mind that what makes women reinforce this oppression upon themselves is the result of a long history of living under the social structure of patriarchy.

Addressing these important issues in the essay, the argument of the Radicalesbians involves a three-pronged analysis of the social condition of women's oppression in the contemporary society.
