Why Priya Ramani's Acquittal in MJ Akbar Defamation Case Is A Big Win For India's #MeToo Movement

Noting that a person's 'right of reputation can't be protected at the cost of right to dignity', Delhi's Rouse Avenue court on Wednesday acquitted journalist Priya Ramani in the criminal defamation case filed by former Union minister MJ Akbar. Akbar had sued Ramani around two years ago after she, apart from at least 20 other women, went public with allegations of sexual assault against the journalist-turned-politician as part of the #MeToo movement in India. #PriyaRamani #MJAkbar #metoo Crux is your daily dose of the big, viral and relevant news in a few minutes.
