Abstract: The paper chronicles three fallouts of sexual harassment cases in Jadavpur University (JU) in Kolkata, West Bengal, India, using media reports, activists’ responses to those events, and their reflections. It highlights the differential trajectories that political praxis around sexual harassment and social media takes on the ground. By chronicling three different cases of sexual harassment from Hokkolorob (2014–15) to two other cases till 2017, the paper brings to light the enmeshed nature of on-ground institutions that deal with sexual harassment and social media and the disposition of actors towards them.
