A deadly shooting rampage in California has sparked a conversation about sexual violence, with women sharing stories of harassment, abuse and fear using the hashtag #YesAllWomen on Twitter, says USA Today.



Elliot Rodger, 22, who killed six people before apparently shooting himself in Isla Vista, Calif., Friday night, made misogynous comments in videos and his lengthy manifesto.

Women's comments on Twitter revealed frustration and anger with the acceptance that "boys will be boys," that women are responsible for not being raped rather than men not raping, and the other incidences of campus violence, such as the rapes in Steubenville, Ohio.
