Looks like the point of the movement is to "help survivors of sexual violence" which makes sense, but proponents of it want to "de-stigmatize survivors," and they are "committed to disrupting all systems that allow sexual violence to flourish." All this info is from metoomvmt.org (it's really just one page). Technically, you do not "survive" sexual violence because it does not kill; you can survive attempted murder, which can go along with rape, but that doesn't mean you survived the rape. Anyway, their whole process does very little to end sexual violence.

Okay, first of all you can "survive" sexual violence or rape. Some men, not all, but some, will kill the people that they have raped after they are done. It is not impossible to survive it.
Next, the main motive of the #metoo movement is to support those who have been raped. As Wikipedia said, "the original purpose of #me too was to empower women through empathy, especially young and vulnerable women."
How is that inefficient? It helps and supports women who have been sexually abused.

The rape itself does not kill, so you cannot survive one. You can survive a stabbing, shooting, or a strangling because those things can kill. Anyway, does it actually empower women? Look I'm not saying it's purpose is a bad thing but it just doesn't accomplish its goal. So what proof would you have that it empowers women?

nope, the law is the only argument against rape, putting it to light and letting law get involved is the perfect movement
