There was no lack of viewers when Sri Reddy, an Indian movie actress, took off her top. Ms Reddy, a middling celebrity in central India, declared on Saturday that she was staging a protest against sexual harassment in the Indian movie industry, one of the bolder #MeToo type moments that the nation has seen. She marched up to the offices of a film commission, stripped off naked and stood there glaring at a bank of cameras, hands covering her breasts.

“Are we women, or things to play with?” She scremed. She was then whisked off by the authorities to face possible charges of public nudity. India makes more films than anywhere else. Bollywood represent a hugely successful industry, although the #MeToo movement hasn’t society shaken up the industry in India the way it’s has in the USA, several Indian actresses, following abuse allegations were made from the American manufacturer Harvey Weinstein stepped forward to complain about the all-pervasive tradition of sexual harassment. The allegations contained claims they’d been groped, propositioned and made to lower “oneself” to get work. Ms Reddy, 28, has been the most vocal in last days, she has been accusing men in the movie business.
