Women are using social media to make a statement against Roy Moore, the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate who is accused of making sexual advances on several teen girls.
The Daily Show writer Lizz Winstead launched the #MeAt14 campaign in response to Leigh Corfman accusing Moore of initiating a sexual relationship with her when she was only 14. Moore was 32 at the time. Winstead posted a picture of her at her full fourteen-year-old awkwardness to reinforce why there is an age of consent.
This is me at 14. I was on the gymnastics team and sang in the choir. I was not dating a 32 year old man. Who were you at 14? Tweet a pic, tell us who you were and pic to the top of your page #MeAt14 #NoMoore pic.twitter.com/HPVzMgaD8h

Alyssa Milano, who founded the #MeToo campaign, was among the first to jump onboard the campaign.

A picture around the age when as a teen #MeAt14 when I was sexually assaulted, over 40 years ago. Still remember it to this day, though at the time I did not report it, nor tell anyone, since I didn't know it was assault. I do now,

#MeAt14 Here's a diary entry about the time I started crying at a dance because I was scared of dancing with boys.
Not old enough to consent to a romantic relationship with an adult man! pic.twitter.com/1m2SF7wzo6
