Women didn’t plan for 2014 to be a year of activism. But a series of events sparked a discussion of sexual assault on campus, rape and incessant harassment of young women in public.
On social media, a movement materialized under the hashtags #yesallwomen and #carrythatweight.
"Carry that weight" referred Emma Sulkowicz, the Columbia University student who carries a mattress around campus, demanding that her alleged rapist be kicked out of school. (The university has dismissed the case made by Sulkowicz and two other women.)
