#YesAllWomen Tweets Remind Us That We All Must Work To Ensure Equal Rights And Respect For Women


Elliot Rodger went on a shooting rampage in Isla Vista, California, last Friday because he reportedly wanted to punish the women who had never shown him the affection to which he felt he deserved.

When Rodger's video manifesto was released, he ranted about how the females who had never been attracted to him would pay for not recognizing him as the "perfect gentleman."

But because women are so much more than just things to be pursued and coveted by men, many individuals took to Twitter in the shooting's aftermath, popularizing the hashtag #YesAllWomen.

Users have been tagging the hashtag in posts to remind everyone it's never alright for men to feel entitled to women as the Internet comes together to recognize misogynistic views seeking to dis-empower women are unfortunately still employed in everyday life.

We've rounded up some of Twitter's best responses to this tragedy, and hope that these #YesAllWomen comments will inspire others to speak out against hateful opinions through social media and in-person conversations.
