#MeToo: A mixed response from Pakistan

The good and the bad of a global movement

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/BulletinArticle

Abstract

#MeToo has certainly impacted the public debate around gender issues in Pakistan, especially gender roles, domestic violence, sexual harassment, and discrimination against women, but it has not been without shortcomings and failures.

Although a number of women have come forward, shared their harassment experiences, and publicly outed men for their behaviour towards colleagues, the response to these accusations has been mixed.
