Is time really up for misogyny?
Despite Ford’s powerful testimony as opposed to Kavanaugh’s ‘ranty’ testimony, misogyny won in the end. When a woman accuses someone of sexual harassment, sexual misconduct and/or sexual assault, a lot of men — and sometimes even women — leap to that said man’s defence. After Tanushree Dutta came forward with sexual harassment allegations against Nana Patekar, most people in the film industry decided to stay quiet. But it did give courage to Indian women to come forward and talk about their own experiences. When it comes to sexual harassment or sexual assault cases, the victim/survivor should be supported but that is not what our societies do.
