Women and men who have been sexually abused or raped have gone on Twitter to explain why they didn’t report their abusers.

Some of them are sharing their reasons on Twitter with the hashtag #WhyIDidntReport.
The tweets shared are so many that the hashtag is now trending on the microblogging platform.
