It was 2017 when the New York Times and The New Yorker first carried a series of articles describing how Rose Mcgowan had accused  Harvey Weinstein of rape and sexual assault. As more and more women started talking to the press and more articles were published, the tide changed. Harvey Weinstein was soon expelled from the Academy and this gave a strength to other women survivors, to speak against their offenders. In the months that followed, some of the most high profile names including Kevin Spacey, Woody Allen, Roman Polanski, Morgan Freeman were accused. Since then at-least a four hundred powerful men have been accused.

Women started sharing their stories on social media and newspaper headlines carried #MeToo all over the world. Some offenders tried to bury their deeds by apologizing on the social media, others hired lawyers to sue the women accusers. After a year, the #MeToo movement has found its pace in India.
