On We The People, we debate why India has not had a #MeToo moment. This past week we have seen a high profile hearing of allegations of sexual harassment against US Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh and Bill Cosby's conviction. We have also seen Padma Lakshmi speaking about sexual abuse she faced years ago. But when closer home, former actor Tanushree Dutta accused Nana Patekar, stalwarts of Bollywood remained silent. Moreover, social media has exploded asking Ms Dutta why she chose to speak up a decade after the incident. On We The People, we take a look at what happens when women speak up about sexual abuse and what happens when they don't. Is the 'due process' we are meant to follow, tilted in favor of the powerful? Does speaking up hurt the survivor more? And what will be India's watershed moment?
