In October this year, a young Indian lawyer created and released on social media a spreadsheet where Indian women spoke up anonymously about unwanted advances from professors and older colleagues. It was a list of almost 60 academicians from 28 Indian colleges who have allegedly sexually harassed their students. A list where the names of the complainants were kept anonymous. This list of alleged sexual predators in Indian universities has circulated widely on the internet, creating a storm. On this edition of We The People, we ask, is this unvetted, crowd-sourced, public shaming online vigilantism? Is it a disrespect of due process and a setback to true accountability? Or is it is the last resort for unheard young women?
