On Sunday, nearly 40 women from various filmmaking departments met at Annapurna Studios to discuss the way forward. In the end, some key members decided to set up a panel which would hear complaints from women and bring justice to the victims.

It remains to be seen how this panel is going to make a strong mark in near future.
