How Can Men Help the #MeTooIndia Movement? This Viral Thread Has the Answers!

"How can we men help the #metooIndia movement? Some say "step up", some say "don't drown out women's voices." Some (men) ask, "why should we do anything at all?" So this here is a rolling compilation of what we should do and why."

How Can Men Help the #MeTooIndia Movement? This Viral Thread Has the Answers!

The #MeToo movement in India has named and shamed over 120 eminent people in the film and media industry. While we are not claiming that all the victims were women and all the accused were men, the figures seem to be tilting a certain way, so far.

While the survivors are out and enraged about the abuse they (and many others) have faced, along with the fact that their complaints were buried in the dark for so long, it is also a challenging time for men.

While some are actively supporting the brave women who have dared to name the powerful, some are introspecting on how they can change the patriarchal institutes that have silenced the voices of women for generations.

If you are a man who is confused about how you can be a part of this women-led #MeTooIndia movement, journalist HR Venkatesh has the perfect advice for you.
