A Mumbai-based woman has come up with a ‘nursery rhyme’ to deliver a serious message about consent.
Sukhnidh Kaur, a legal aid counsellor, sings about the blurred and grey lines of consent and drives home the message in an unusual way.
Oh, and her Instagram post says she dedicates the song to MJ Akbar. Wink!
Here’s the song:
For those of you who don’t know, Union Minister MJ Akbar, who was earlier a super powerful journalist, has been accused of sexual harassment by more than a dozen women. He has hired a team with a strength of 97 lawyers, and sued the first woman who named him - journalist Priya Ramani for defamation.
But not one to back off from a fight, Ramani has said in a statement, that "MJ Akbar seeks to silence through intimidation and harassment,” and that “truth is her only defence.”
In the past two weeks, the #MeToo movement has engulfed the country like wildfire, with comedians, journalists, actors, directors, among other powerful men being accused of sexual harassment.
No surprises then, that the conversation around consent has finally begun to be taken seriously.
