The poignant #MeToo movement shook the world and created a conundrum that left everyone seething. While most were angry and disappointed, others saw it as a glimmer of hope, a silver lining, which would give courage to people to speak up against heinous acts of sexual violence. Many artists added an edge to the movement with their powerful imagery, poems, and work of art. Joining the brigade, an all-girls jazz group of the BOM squad ‘Svetana’ has created a powerful video to capture the #MeToo campaign through their evocative dance moves.
Sharing many stories of young girls and women along with the video on their YouTube channel, they wrote, “When every woman says #MeToo, we have a problem. There is nothing big or small, harassment is harassment. Please do not be afraid to speak up.” With no music, but only through a narration of harrowing experiences of several women, the trio expressed the agony through dance and stressed to “not suffer in silence”. “It’s not your fault. Take help if you need,” they said.
