Through MeToo movement, women made their voice heard. They confronted their abusers, made history and broke records. However, as always, there is still more work to be done.
Despite the long struggle for equality, despite the many valuable achievements, women still face many challenges and problems every day. It doesn’t refer only to one country, those issues exist even in the most developed societies. Although rights for women have come a long way over the past few decades, there are still many issues women face today. There are many women around the world who are subject to oppression, gender inequality, gender stereotypes, and many more problems and challenges.
The Me Too movement in India is a manifestation of the international Me Too movement that is currently taking place in parts of Indian society including government, media, and film industry. Being one of the main face of Me Too movement in South India, Chinmayi Sripaada, has now come up with a shocking screenshots of a complaint from a woman against a pedophile.
The screenshot shows the story of a woman who says that she was abused by her own uncle who might still be abusing kids. On sharing the screenshot Chinmayi wrote “It takes a lot for people to actually share their stories with anyone, leave alone with me, a total stranger.This is an adult man with kids. When will people start pressuring schools and their own families to ID predators? Kids are at risk. Please wake up.”

Since the start of the MeToo movement, Chinmayi has been at the center stage of the events after her accusations against legendary lyricist Vairamuthu became a huge talking point all round. A storm broke out after singer Chinmayi accused poet-lyricist Vairamuthu of sexual harassment in the wave of #MeToo that swept through South India. While some in the industry did speak in support of her, she faced a lot of trolling and abuse for making the charge.
However the singer is still revealing the darkest side of our society by exposing the stories that are sent to her. It is extremely heartbreaking to witness such incidents and it constantly proves that the state is getting unsafe for women and children day by day.
