"The rage of Indian women -- submerged thus far in the recesses of memory, wrapped away in swathes of fear and self-doubt, and suppressed for years by entrenched social stigma -- has finally come pouring out to set in motion India's long-overdue #MeToo moment. Caught in the swirl of these floodwaters: an official in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government, journalists, actors, directors and writers -- all accused of varying degrees of sexual harassment, misconduct or assault. Finally, India's women are pushing back against the corrosive abuse of male power. It is nothing short of a revolution."
