THE MOVEMENT THAT IS SETTING WOMEN FREE
#HeToo: Wholeness After Sexual Assault
The He too campaign was launched in 2018 by Dianna Hobbs. It empowers sexual assault survivors of faith and color to not only use their voices to share their stories, but also, to see how Christ’s story and His redemptive work on the cross has power to heal their pain. It shows women that they don't have to be bound by what was done to them; they are free because of what Christ has done for them.
“The me too movement is missing a man and His name is Jesus,” says Dianna Hobbs, founder of the He too campaign.
Hobbs reveals that she felt compelled to launch the He too campaign, specifically for women of faith and color, as a companion to the Me too movement Tarana Burke founded in 2006.
Burke, who also experienced sexual assault, was looking for a way to help women and girls, particularly women and girls of color, who had also survived sexual violence.
The Me too founder embraces the idea of “empowerment through empathy.” The philosophy is, when women know they are not alone, and receive loving support and care, they are strengthened and able to begin the journey to healing.
