On The Social Network, we discuss the massive outrage on and off the social media about the President's son's remark that 'painted and dented' women can't be part of a real revolution! Protesters from Nirantar, a women's group, and a senior journalist in Delhi and an English professor from Kolkata join us on the show. We discuss how Abhijit Mukherjee's remarks questioned the legitimacy of the recent Delhi protests and were part of the exact same mindset in the country, which leads to violence against women and which the protests are trying to change.
