Malaysian women go on Twitter to report sexual harassment and call out their perpetrators

For most of these women, sharing their stories meant being heard and getting some closure in order to get past their horrific experience.

It started last Friday with a tweet from a Malaysian woman who shared her harrowing story of being sexually harassed by an acquaintance. She named her alleged perpetrator openly, demanding that he be accountable for violating her and own up to his act.

Her tweet drew considerable attention: several other women claimed that they too had been violated by the same man and either responded to her tweet or messaged her privately, sharing their own stories.
