#MeToo in India: What's Next
Georgetown University School of Foreign Service
Last October, India was swept by the winds of the #MeToo movement. The first move came from the Indian film industry, when Tanushree Dutta, a prominent Indian actress, accused Nana Patekar, an established actor and filmmaker, of sexual harassment on the set of a movie in 2008. Days later, journalist Priya Ramani accused M.J. Akbar, a leading government minister, of sexual harassment. These moves opened the floodgates for many other women working in the Indian film industry, media, government, private sector, and academia.
