Maliwal welcomed the #metoo movement and requested all women and girls to come forwad and report any kind of sexual harrasment against them. 

She said, This is the right time to please come out, please report so, all these sexual predators that are existing in our society, they need to be taken to task and they need to be put behind bars.

I've also appealed to the Prime Minister through a letter today. Sir, please first of all remove Mr. M.J. Akbar from the post of minister in your central government. I think he does not deserve to be a minister anymore, she added.
