The hashtag #YouKnowHerName was started today by Halifax freelance journalist Hilary Beaumont. Today Hilary wrote from the Halifax courtroom during sentencing for a 20 year-old defendant, who plead guilty in September. He was given no jail time and must take a course on sexual harassment. When offered the opportunity to say something he said nothing.
The hashtag refers to my daughter, Rehtaeh Parsons.
The hashtag #youknowhername has now been picked up around the world and was trending in the #2 spot in Canada.
