#MeToo Wave Eyeing on More
It’s been about more than a month when the initiative has been taken by the Bollywood Actress ‘Tanushree Dutta’ stated an allegation of Sexual Harassment against renowned Actor ‘Nana Patekar’. Her bold step gave courage to other actress and females to share their story as well. This courage gives a name as #MeToo movement on the various Social Media platforms and News Channels.
As the #MeToo wave is intensifying day by day many famous names have come in the knowledge. Women are taking a bold step to teach all these people a good lesson and not to take any unnecessary advantage of any female in the future. All these shared incidents are helping others to become aware and be attentive against them if they face them in the future.
Not only in the Film Industry but also women’s are coming with their stories from various other fields as well. The harasser could be a Business Man, Politician, and Colleague, Teacher/Professor or anyone. Who is willing to take any unnecessary advantage of his/her post or power against the one who is in need.
I would like to add one thing to my own that a harasser could be male or female both. The harassment is not gendered biased on any work environment. But harassment against women is at its peak, so women need to be attentive and vocal against any type of harassment faced.
The Politicians and other famous personalities are backing these #MeToo stories and it allows other women’s to have the courage and be vocal against these incidents. This #MeToo floodgate has stated many names of famous Actor, Director, Singer i.e., Sajid Khan, Subhash Ghai, Luv Ranjan, Abhijit Bhattacharya, Alok Nath (famous on T.V. Serials as ‘Babu Ji’); famous Politician and Media Personal M. J. Akbar and Vinod Dua respectively. Still, there are many names which are not mentioned.
I think if this #MeToo movement continued at this pace, then it will definitely give many other famous personalities name. Women have to be aware and vocal against harassment whether it includes a famous personal name or a common man’s name. Sexual harassment can happen at Work Place, on Roads, at Schools and Colleges or even at your home as well; in short, you can face harassment at any place. So, be brave, vocal and attentive against it.
