Anne sat down before her television set.
“The world is shaking everyone! Many women have begun shedding light on the past wrong deeds of many men who had silenced them for long.” cried a news reporter standing in front of a bustling crowd of angry women holding placards and shouting slogans.
“The #MeToo movement has taken by a storm. It is spreading like a wildfire engulfing all wrong doers in it’s flames.” the reporter carried on.
“All? Really?” Anne talked to herself.
“Many, maybe most but not all….” Anne continued talking to herself as she shed a tiny pearl of a tear down her cheek remembering how she too had suffered.
The time when the physician had groped her in the name of medical examination, the time when her older cousin had touched her inappropriately making her gut wrench, the time when her trusted crush tried to make unusual advances towards her and she had to run away to save herself.
“There are so many women who suffer everyday thinking about what all had happened but don’t have an evidence to support their say or don’t have the courage to talk about it in public. Those hounds and dirty minded people get away with their bad deeds.” Anne started a one sided conversation with the TV reporter behind the screen as she continued to babble.
Alas, even after a lot of effort “that which is unspoken becomes unspeakable”.
Thank you for reading.
Have a nice day!
