The Woman Who Started "Me Too" On Why "We Didn't Need Another Quiet Day"
This weekend, survivors of both sexual assault and harassment rallied around #MeToo, a hashtag intended to spread awareness about how alarmingly common it is to be a victim of sexual misconduct or violence. The trend stemmed from protests related to a temporary lockdown of actress Rose McGowan's account last week, which many felt was reflective of a society that doesn't take women's accounts of sexual abuse seriously.
For background: McGowan has been fiercely critical of producer Harvey Weinstein since The New York Times published an Oct. 5 report detailing a litany of accusations regarding producer Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct, particularly toward young female employees. (Weinstein publicly apologized for "the way I've behaved with colleagues in the past," but "unequivocally" denied many of the specific assault and harassment allegations.) Last week, McGowan's account was temporarily locked for reportedly tweeting someone's personal phone number amid a series of tweets related to her own alleged assault.

"The set clearly touched and inspired many."
A new playset from LEGO will honor four key women in NASA history—astronomer Nancy Grace Roman, computer scientist Margaret Hamilton, and pioneering astronauts Sally Ride and Mae Jemison. The 231-piece set will be released on Nov. 1, with a recommended selling price of $24.99.
First proposed in July, 2016 by the deputy editor of MIT News, science writer Maia Weinstock, on the LEGO Ideas website, the project reached 10,000 supporters in just 15 days. "The set clearly touched and inspired many," Weinstock said. In addition to the historical minifigures, the set includes three builds that put the work of each woman into historical context.
