The actor expressed her take on the movement by penning an article
Mumbai: Actor Sonam K Ahuja has spoken out once again about the massive social media movement against sexual harassment. The actor took to pen down her thoughts on #MeToo campaign for a behavioural change portal, Thrive Global.
In the article, the actor listed nine simple suggestions that can help everyone—women, men—to be part of this sweeping change. "Believe the survivors," she wrote, for "we owe them, at the least, our trust and support." She calls for a change in the patriarchal mindset and the importance of understanding consent; a halt to sexist jokes and labelling; and a focus on empowering women by hiring them in key roles as pivotal decision makers.
"It should be about survivors and perpetrators, about making the society less misogynist, entitled and changing how we think," she writes. "It's time to transform the naysayers into supporters, to join the movement in full force and oppose every act—even a suggestion—of abuse and discrimination."
