Actress Swara Bhaskar has revealed she was sexually harassed by a director but it took her nearly six to eight years to realise what had happened as the culture doesn’t teach women to recognise predatory behaviour.
Swara was speaking at a panel discussion on the life of Harvey Weinstein at &PrivéHD’s Prive Soiree on January 17 in Mumbai. Privé Soirée is an on-ground IP of the channel &PrivéHD, under which it screens one critically-acclaimed film for the general audience, followed by a thought-provoking panel discussion delving into the other side of the cinema.
Actor Dia Mirza and award winning documentary filmmaker Anand Patwardhan were also part of the discussion, which explored the Me Too movement in India. The CSR Journal brings you the highlights of this thought provoking discussion.
The #metoo movement has put the spotlight on gender inclusion and sexual harassment at the workplace, which we will be delving on soon.
