#MeToo helping Me’s to reach milestones

A small spark can burn down the forest to ashes, similarly a small movement called #MeToo has overturned the world with shocking tweets. This movement has kindled fear among patriarchal society which had been harassing the women for years and hindering their growth in work place. It is shocking to know that Indian men were also charged in this movement.
This movement is much needed at this time for the women’s upliftment. Women had been passive so far hiding their pains within themselves. This movement has clearly shown us that women were harassed for sustenance in their jobs. If such an impediment weren’t there, India would have got the best leaders in different arenas. It is expected that the attitude of men will change through this movement to allow women to do, what they really capable .
However, it is hard to accept the fact that some opportunistic women try to ruin the fame of some men. Moreover, the significance of this movement could also be lost. We can never allow injustice to triumph, we need genuine claims on harassers with substantiating proofs to punish the assailants. Women can make this revolution fair and can make imprints in sands of time

    1. It indirectly makes the sinner ashamed of himself. I feel self pricking of conscience is best punishment. Now if a woman charges on a man, immediately he is fired from the job and as a bonus he loses his respect in society

      1. Self guilt is the ultimate punishment. I agree. But what if the self conscience of a person is broken? Yes, the culprits will lose respect, once their secret is out. But that’s supposed to happen right?

  3. I feel like there are many results and sides to this movement that is still in the process of defining itself. I think that there has been many strides in airing out concerns of women who have been harassed and abused. Many women feel less shame knowing that they are not alone in their feelings. However, I also feel like the movement is dangerous as I feel with many movements. There’s not a lot of oversight and a form of checks and balances. Things can easily be misconstrued.

    I also think there is also a sort of retaliation and backlash as well. There are some men who do not want to hire women in light of it, and several women face alienation in the workplace. Men become fearful of interacting with women altogether because of the possibility of false accusations. I do agree with you that there are opportunistic women out there who would use this as a sort of leverage and exploit several men to get what they want.

    1. Thank you for sharing your valuable thoughts. I completely accept with what you have said. Most people ( men or women) need a starter so they can follow through. Only few have the guts to start a movement. I saw this movement as a movement for equality. We may be different genders but we all are living beings capable of thinking wise even at critical situation, why can’t it give equal space to other genders too. Thank you for reading my thoughts and leaving insightful comment.

      1. You’re welcome! I’m glad you’re discussing it here. There’s no doubt in my mind that this movement will go down in history and will spark discussion and new ideas for years to come. I also think like the feminist movement that #Metoo will have several waves following this initial opening of the floodgates. Change takes time, but I do think it will create many avenues of possibilities. I was very impressed when women felt emboldened to go to Congress, share their experiences, and establish rape kits and talk to the legislative house to create new laws. I believe in equality between genders as well. I think the world can benefit from both perspectives. I like the sentiments of equality in this poem: https://innervoiceactor.wordpress.com/2018/10/03/i-am-a-wowman/?c=2309#comment-2309
