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 #metoo 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.
