Mumbai Police often take to Instagram to discuss not only security concerns but also social issues. A few months ago, their response to a Twitter user pointing out that consent questions had gone viral online and had received high praise from people. They are once again receiving applause from Internet users for their latest message, “Let’s not normalize misogyny”. In this article, they used dialogue from a few popular movies to get their point across.
“Cinema is a reflection of our society. Here are (only) a few (among many) dialogues that our society and the cinema need to reflect on. Choose your words and actions carefully – unless you want the law to step in! They wrote while sharing the pictures. The images feature sexist remarks from films from different eras – from the 1988 film Maalamaal to the 2019 film Kabir Singh. Their publication is complete with the hashtags #LetsNotNormalizeMisogyny, #MindYourLanguage and #WomenSafety.
