What is it about?
Whether #YouToo is an effective strategy to further LGBTQ+ rights is examined in the context of El Salvador. We argue that hashtag activism is not useful in El Salvador given social forces at work. How Leadership can change the social imaginary of a country is central to this investigation.

Why is it important?
The #YouToo movement has been a powerful force revealing the magnitude and global reach of sexual harassment and abuse. Yet the LGBTQ+ community has not been completely involved in the movement because they are marginalized and still afraid to speak. In El Salvador, the LGBTQ+ community has been ostracized and subjected to terrible violence. They have not yet been able to speak through the #YouToo movement and it is important to understand that in some cultures and countries, #YouToo needs to reach out to be more inclusive and understanding of the barriers to justice and inclusion.
