Political writer Tavleen Singh has been criticized on social media after she commented on a female journalist’s clothes on stage during a #MeToo event. “Look at you, you’re dressed like a man,” she said to Mirror Now journalist, Faye D’Souza. Following the criticism, Singh tweeted, “It was a joke…It’s clear that it’s no longer possible to make jokes in front of feminists.”

So when we talk about #MeToo, we should be aware that a female who lives her dreams or dresses according to her choices always becomes the subject of conversation. This incident happened when three generations of female journalists sat at an event related to the trending #MeToo movement. It emphasized how to make workspaces better and more comfortable for females.
D’Souza later told the public that if she would have worn a tight red dress, then she would have been called sultry and now if she wears a suit she is called a man. Women will be judged for what ever they do, or they do not. It’s time we respect every human’s choice to do what they want to do.
