The eruption of this movement was given flow by the use of tweeter by Milano an actress who opened a conversation where she allowed those who had been harassed in their places of work. Within a short period of time, the world got to know that this problem has been facing magnitude that did not have the guts to speak about it in the public. Assuredly, with the effectiveness of the movement and several branches that emerged in different parts of the world, cases have been solved with subsequent improvement in organizational behaviour.
Cases in education

A perfect offender whose investigation led to a report of ninety-seven pages was Carlson Ron constituting testimonials from different students (Murray, 2017). As a result, the event that followed was the resignation of the professor which was granted by UC Irvine immediately they learned about the misconduct. Other cases that had the same relation involving professors in UC were dealt with either termination or sanction with the help of the movement which had motivated the female gender to speak their minds. Outwardly, through the adoration of the movement, harassment in workplaces and institutions was reduced by a great percentage.
Government organizations and officials

Sporting organizations
The sporting organizations have been involved in scandals associated with disrespect for gender and harassment of the female. One of the cases ever reported in 2016 involved a United States doctor Nassar Larry who happened to be the Michigan State University Gymnastics official. The official was called by the movement after assaulting a six-year-old gymnast during a session for treatment. The case was never taken seriously in the past but with the support of the Me Too Movement which allowed for women’s support (Nielsen et al., 2017). After some time, this case was reviewed and this led to life imprisonment of the doctor.
