'Women's day will come and go but..' Chinmayi Sripada opens up on the battle of sexual harassment

Chinmayi Sripada is the popular singer cum dubbing artist in the film industry. She is the one who actively fights for equality among men and women. She openly talks about the sexual harassment that women face in different places. She even named out Tamil lyricist Vairamuthu for molesting her. Several times in the past, she opened up about it and revealed how difficult it is to find work, after naming out someone who is powerful. A person recently shared how it is difficult for women to fight sexual harassment and Chinmayi has shared her views on the same. She also revealed an opinion that it is really difficult for the women to name the offenders and make sure they get punished.
 
Talking about how many times different women named out predators, Chinmayi wrote, "Mr. Vairamuthu could have 13+ women naming him. Mr. Radha Ravi can ban whomsoever he wants if they question him and complain about sexual harassment. Both men will platform by DMK / BJP respectively. Mr. Anu Malik - 6+ women in public. Mr. Karthik - At least 7 (?) women including a singer in Switzerland. She put out an Instagram post months after Oct 2017, unaware of the #MeToo movement in India; At least 3 of the women who accused him are have nothing to do with the film industry. Gets platformed by Isha. Mr. Kailash Kher - Got platformed by AAP and multiple other Govt events. Mr. Raghu Dixit; Mr. M J Akbar still a BJP member, no? Narayanan, President of Tamilnadu Brahmin Association - no action. There was an attempt at an investigation but the man is another Mr. Radha Ravi. All the Carnatic Musicians that got named are repeatedly platformed, patronized, supported by the audience in India and abroad."
 
 
 
 
Chinmayi also opened up about how women don't get work offers but men who got named easily find work. "The male journalists that got named - they easily got jobs at other mainstream news outlets. Women drown in legal work, losing work and money. Women are trained to not retaliate, to not complain, to not question. And to some of us that raise our heads after being tired of normalizing the abuse even if women themselves shame us - Why now / why so late etc." she wrote on Twitter.
 
"Women’s day will come and go. One day or that week leading up to Women’s Day will be about celebrating the work women do. But the rest of the year goes in women unable to get justice at most platforms. My complaint is still NOT investigated FYI. In the midst of all this, when the odds against women is still stratospheric we have people saying “I don’t think Feminism is good. I believe in equality of genders." she added.
