High Court Judge comes in support of #MeToo Movement, says ‘Unrestrained Sexism’ Plagues Judiciary

On Friday, a Bombay High Court Judge has came out in support of the ongoing #MeToo movement and said straight that the Patriarchal World does not allow women to speak freely.

Today Justice Gautam Patel has said he “fully supported” the women who have decided to share their experiences of ‘Sexual Harassment’ and name their tormentors.

At an event organised by the Women’s Wing of the Indian Merchants’ Chamber in the city, he said the judiciary was also plagued with “rampant sexism and the culture of patriarchy”.

“This incessant bullying of women, no matter how competent they are, is because they are women and this is the archetypal, nauseating patriarchy of our legal profession. It is not discussed, it happens everywhere.”

He went onto add,”If I find a male lawyer trying to intimidate a female lawyer, I must never allow that to happen, the effort must be to strive towards gender neutrality.”

Justice Patel said just as evidence was gathered & due process of Law was followed by the Authorities in American Actor & Comedian Bill Cosby’s Case that authorities in India too should ensure that the due Legal Process is followed.

Bill Cosby was convicted last month in a case of ‘Sexual Assault’ that took place 14 years ago.

The Judge said,”It takes lot of courage to speak at any time. Why women have not come forward is a very serious problem, and the reason is that because our world is so patriarchal and so biased that it does not allow our women to speak freely at times when they should or they could. We now need to have a discussion on how we are going to get rid of this completely damaged, mocked system that we have of judging this cause.”
