Molly will be in Mumbai this week to speak at the ninth annual Mumbai International Literary Festival, AKA Tata Literature Live! Now spanning three different venues across Mumbai, the festival brings together writers and lovers of literature from around the world. Molly will be joining over 100 other writers and speakers for a weekend filed with panels, workshops, and performances.
On November 17th Molly will join Harnidh Kaur, Kalki Koechlin, Richa Kaul Padte and Sunita Wazir for a panel titled “Code of Conduct: The New Rules at Work”
“In light of the #MeToo movement, it has become clear that we need new rules of conduct both in the workplace and in the private sphere. While rules against sexual harassment in the workplace have been in place for decades, the culture of shame, secrecy, and exploitation has rendered the rules largely ineffective in protecting employees against predatory behavior. Thanks to social media, a paradigm shift has occurred and a large number of victims have been able to come forward with their stories, exposing the systematic use and acceptance of sexual harassment.”
