Commentary > India’s #MeToo moment

    Though the movement has taken rapid strides and exposed many cases of harassment and sexual abuse by eminent personalities, it has not been able to cover many women who face regularly make hegemony and abuses. Many poor and marginalised sections, the adivasi and tribals, etc have little access to social media to air their views. They suffer in the hands of the state military and police apparatus and most of their cases go unreported. The movement has largely confined to upper caste or creamy layers of society. The activists have to work towards inclusiveness in order to succeed and assist the needy.
