Hi guys, some of you need to dissent/ decline wrt the #manels youve been put on, at the @skochgroup event
- @SkochSameer pls check.
- Guys on manels include @nitin_gadkari @ManishTewari @ashwani_mahajan @iam_anandv @prasanna_s @prasanto @nixxin @AnupamSaraph @pavanduggal + others
2. Does this reflect lack of #merit or prevalence of #sexism that @skochgroup has found only 4 women of worth, out of 46 speakers?

- The 4 women: @ShamikaRavi @rachnakhaira @navikakumar, Yamini Aiyar

- How are the 42 men feeling?

3. Today began with @skochgroup declaring that only 4 women were found #meritorious, to speak on tech.
But 42 men were worthy.
They celebrated this #inequality, with a full page ad in Indian Express.
5. But this was not before men themselves, told Skoch publicly & privately, that they refuse to profit from #patriarchy, that they refuse to do a #BrosBeforeHoes, on us, their Sisters.
At least 6.42 men did this.
6. This was not before Skoch displayed its lack of respect for #diversity and #equality.
This was not before Skoch showcased the tech-world’s fatal flaw: #MoralDisconnectedness
7. This was not before Skoch challenged me, us, Twitter, with #contempt, to find them a few women, who could perhaps, measure up to their standard of merit, their default standard… which is, #male.
9. The labour of women, and men, to find women speakers for Skoch’s manel resulted in about-- 52 names of women-- being suggested.
-Skoch could & should have done this themselves.
-Men on the manels could & should have, inquired & dissented if required, themselves.
10. @ my Brothers on the manels who #dissented, even #declined this event today: You did good today :).
At least 6/42 who I know of, publicly or privately, told Skoch that they will not abet this #inequality.
11. What these 6/42 men did today is important.
#Brothers must come clean:
- You guys #ProfittingFromPatriarchy, or you gonna be here for us, your #Sisters?
- You gonna do a Bros Before Hoes? Gonna pull a Boy's Club?
- Or gonna do Sisters Before Misters?
13. Closing tweets:

It is 2018.
It is unacceptable that people find it acceptable to publicly proclaim without shame, such immorals as being "blind to gender, caste and religion."
It is 2018.
Diversity and equality is not an after thought.
It should be where we begin.
Diversity and equality is not what happens, if it is convenient.
It should be becoming, the default.

I never want to open a newspaper & see a display of inequality like this, again.
15. @ People at @skochgroup, I propose 2 things:

- Do another full-page ad, now w/ your improved panels. I know it costs $.
Get it right.

- Call people you respect, who have spent time thinking of how we can make the world more equal, & get a briefing.
Get it right.
16. The wages of equality is

Was getting pissed with men standing in metro ladies carriage and then this 9 y/o-ish girl told them to fuck out, hehehehehe trust a #DelhiGirl :-p
Drunk asshole in pink t shirt tried to pick conversation with me few minutes ago, then I saw him fall down on the platform and he sat there for a while.
Now he's entered the ladies carriage, towards Kashmere Gate.

Yo @DCP_DelhiMetro, kem cho?
Wtf, 5 men entered ladies carriage together, sat on 5 seats and stared at me smiling when I told then to leave.

There's no security personnel at any Delhi metro station platform today and I've been through about 25 tonight.
