Studio singers Ciara Wilson and Kelly Rowland are lending their voices to the growing #metoo hashtag movement that is fueling national hysteria over real or imagined sexual harassment cases.
The anti-harassment #metoo movement has resulted in the resignations of at least 3 lawmakers and nearly upended Roy Moore's chances to win AG Jeff Sessions' vacated Senate seat in the Alabama special election on Tuesday.
The anti-harassment movement has grown ever since disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein was exposed as a serial predator in November.
The hashtag was initially created by Tarana Burke to encourage more women to come forward and name their abusers and harassers.
Now, Kelly Rowland has stepped forward to lend her support to the movement, and to those who have come forward to share their stories.
"First off, I’m very, very proud of the #MeToo movement that’s happening right now,” she told Billboard on Friday. “I think that what I’m most proud of is the bravery that has taken place.”
The mother-of-one added: "The fact that there’s this huge line of communication that’s open, I think that it is necessary. And you see what happens when you communicate. And I just encourage women to continue to communicate, continue to talk about any and everything.”
She continued: "We experience different things as women every day. We have to bind together in solidarity and show each other support.”
Ciara also spoke about the the importance of women standing up for each other, and told Billboard that she saluted the survivors.
"There are so many women that stand up for what they believe in and aren’t afraid to fight for what they believe in and fight for their rights,” she said. “I just want to say I salute you and keep on being courageous.”
"Let’s all continue to come together and unite because we are stronger together," she added.
