This chapter shows how the #MeToo moment in India became an important turning point for the engagement of Indian women’s movements with legal processes Based on an autoethnographic account of being a member of university committees framing anti-sexual harassment policies and dealing with complaints, it also examines the specific site of complaints committees in Indian higher education institutions in the context of #MeToo. Finally, in mapping vast changes to the legal and institutional landscape of sexual harassment in India, it reflects on the ‘messiness’ of these spaces and insists on the role of care and conversation in feminist debates and their engagements with the law and university complaints processes.
