The #wewillharassmen hashtag launched on Thursday.  By Monday, it was trending on twitter. 

A young Egyptology student created the hashtag in response to shocking video of an Eqyptian woman who was stripped naked and assaulted in Tahir Squre.  The video has been viewed half a million times in less than a week. 

Twitter revenge is one way to bring awareness to violence against women.  Hoping the dialogue continues and brings about real change.
