Kangana Ranaut-Radhika Apte Support MeToo Campaign, Raise Voice Against Sexual Harassment

 

 

Responding to the #MeToo campaign on sexual harassment and assault started by Hollywood actor Alyssa Milano, Bollywood actresses Konkana Sen Sharma and Radhika Apte have come out in support of it.

Since the movement kicked off, after mass sexual assault charges cropped up against Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein, several women have started to speak about their experiences on social media using the hashtag MeToo.

Women are abused, sexually harassed almost everyday. Nobody is spared, not even celebrities. After actresses opened up about how they were raped and molested by Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein, #MeToo campaign kickstarted on the internet, where women posted about similar stories on social media. It’s deeply appalling to know that men feel they have an upper hand over women, and they can do whatever they feel like with them. It’s not a gender issue; it is about the power they feel they have.

Many Bollywood celebs also opened up about their horrifying experiences and supported the protest. Joining the bandwagon now are Kangana Ranaut, Radhika Apte and Konkona Sen Sharma.

“What is nice about it is if it makes people understand the magnitude of the problem, it’s good, if it helps other people to speak up about it then that’s wonderful. There are nice things that you can achieve from this as well.

“I haven’t done it (written on social media about #MeToo), but I read about it. I do support it. It is not disturbing, it is great that women are coming out,” said Radhika Apte.

“It’s a deliberate stand that I have taken against issues that I strongly condemn, issues like physical abuse, exploitation, sexual harassment and pay disparity. I am prepared for all the fights that would come my way.

“I know like-minded individuals, my well-wishers worry about me, but we need to know that it’s not going to be easy. I am super thrilled that I can use my voice and position for significant causes, and I assure everyone that nothing will stop me from doing that,” said Kangana Ranaut.
