In a patriarchal society, women are taught self doubt, silence, to put up with shit. To assume that they will be able to say no to 1st sexual overture by a colleague/senior at work is unfair. Some cant afford to quit the job. (1/n) #Metoo
They put up with stalking, unwanted attention, nasty sexist behaviour for years on end knowing that not many will believe them when they complain. It is not a level playing field. Wish it was but apart from work hierarchies, there r gender hierarchies to conquer too. #MeToo (2/n)
