    #MeToo India: Why Women are Not Each Other’s ‘Natural’ Allies at the Workplace

    The #MeToo movement is all about the power of collective sisterhood, but women are not necessarily natural allies in the workplace. Several of the stories that have emerged before and during this wave of #MeToo have illustrated this painfully. You have Seema Mustafa taking a position of willful inactionwhen approached by an agitated Ghazala Wabab at the Asian Age office. The woman who has taken R K Pachauri to court for sexual harassment has spoken about how she hopes to name and shame the women who were “complicit in allowing the atmosphere to breed crime”. Ex-Tehelka managing editor and avowed feminist Shoma Chaudhury came under fire for shielding boss Tarun Tejpal when a colleague accused him of sexual assault. Former Indian Idol assistant producer Danica D’Souza has described how women seniors in the production house “turned a blind eye” to Anu Malik’s harassment even as they warned young women to never meet him alone.

    In a Print article titled ‘#MeToo in India should not forgive women who enable patriarchy and rape culture’, Shivam Vij says “Women in positions of power are expected to not defend men who harass and assault women.” Unfortunately, this is not true. As many cases have shown, this is exactly what we can expect many women to do.

    We see women defending abusers, we see women pretending ignorance, we see women dispensing hugs, we see women offering tips for self-protection—but what they have in common is their refusal to take action even if they have the power to do so.

    So, why do some women enable or even promote misogyny in the workplace? After all, many of them believe in feminist ideals, don’t they? Are they just horrible people? Answer: No. They are human beings and it’s human nature to keep your own behind covered.

    Simple...dont drink..dont attend parties.
    Or if attending parties..make sure no alcohol and only be with trusted friends and never meet up with anyone alone be it male or female.

    Its that simple..what is so hard.
    Not all men are bad..we cant mistrust everyone but just play safe.

    I am going to take issue with this position.

    Men have to change their behavior. The good old boys club must end.
    It is not right that women have to live a scared life, just because there are few predators around. I have no problem if these predators are eliminated or caged to make it safe.
    Women have to work outside of the home. They have to socialize. I do agree that we have to be aware of our surroundings all the time. But others have to follow the rules of the game.

    All men are not bad. But these allegations may take an ugly turn.

    Unless enquirer is conducted swiftly, and guilty punished from both sides, we may expect more names.

    What is surprising is people are glorifying politicians, actors, sportsmen etc if they marry more than once, without legal sanction.

    Even common men want Chinna Veedus just that they dare not partly becos of financial constrain.

    Many try to have "halal" chinna veedus by claiming they are just friends but do everything else under the sun except gunning it.
    Emotional affairs are on the rise but some choose to call it "intellectual discussion of the non hormonal kind"...its always better to be honest. ..if one desires a Chinna Veedu but cant afford it or not famous enough for it or not handsome enough for it...dont envy men who do..let them have fun.

    Envy is an evil monster!

    Socializing need not involve alcohol..this is the main cause of problems for both men and women..both try to get too close for comfort and next someone would be shouting #Metoo.

    Life isnt that hard...no need to play victim card 24/7 unless one is really a victim of actual rape and harassment.


    The average Indian male usually insults a women if he gets into a disagreement with her.

    If she has differing views he would get all abusive and degrade her by calling her names with have heavy character assassination undertones...so the best is just avoid getting too friendly with situations which could endanger us.

    Is it that hard?

    See...not all Lions are man eaters but how would we know unless we jump into a lions den?

    So do we want to take a risk?

    We have to get facts straight..there are good men and also bad and also men who behaved badly under the influence of alcohol and ended up doing something he didnt intend..so why be at risk and try to find out which type we are facing...so always be safe.

    Even men have to take precaution cos some women would seduce them then scream #Metoo...so nowadays its a dangerous world out there.

    Why go so far...Surphanaka too faced a #Metoo situation cos Rama and Lakshmana cut her nose and ears.
    All she did is try to flirt with them and they insulted her and mocked her by making go back forth between Rama and Lakshmana and Seeta being a female didnt even tell Rama and Lakshmana to stop mocking a female and rest is history.

    So the #Metoo of Surphanaka angered Ravana and we got the Ramayan!
