This Bois Locker Room disaster has shone a light on this ongoing rampant misogyny and rape culture in India. Targeting such young girls and speaking about them in such a disgusting/dehumanizing way. We need our MEN (esp actors/politicians.) to step in against this violence NOW.— Jameela Jamil ð (@jameelajamil) May 4, 2020
The work and endangerment of whistleblowing and speaking out must not just fall on the women, as usual. This rot of patriarchy has to be cleared from the inside. We need men to infiltrate the system in ways we can’t, alone, from the outside. Think of the women you love/respect.— Jameela Jamil ð (@jameelajamil) May 4, 2020
