MeToo in India: building revolutions from solidarities


  • Sanjana Pegu


In this article, I curate diverse perspectives on the MeToo movement in India and its subsequent crosscurrents. Drawing on in-depth interviews with five women from different backgrounds, I explore the movement’s significance, impact, unresolved questions, and potential solutions. Through our dialogues, we interrogated and unpacked myriad issues, including rampant gender-based violence at our workplaces and in our homes, the repeated failure of due process, and the need to move towards a politics of solidarity and mutual empowerment, rather than one steeped in an individualist, capitalist patriarchy. I raise questions for academic and activist discussion, deliberation, and enquiry.
