The #MeToo movement has taken the country by storm and several women from all sectors of the workforce have come forward and named the person who sexually harassed them. Several of the harassers have lost their jobs due to this and the AndhaDhun actress Radhika Apte opened up by saying that she's genuinely loving the #MeToo movement as she wanted this to happen a long time back and didn't want womenfolk to suffer this much under the hands of the powerful.
Misuse Of Power Should Be Checked, Says Radhika Apte
"There are a lot of people in the industry who are trying to come together and find a way of forming a system which is going to be more apt to deal with the abuse or misuse of power within the industry," said Radhika Apte to IANS.
I Genuinely Love The #MeToo Movement
"I think it is very good that people are coming out and speaking about such things. It is extremely essential and I completely support the movement. I hope that we can all constructively come together and formulate a structure where everyone can feel safe sooner rather than later. I genuinely love that this movement is coming here."
Women From All Sectors Must Speak Up!
"I think it's high time, not only in Bollywood, but in all industries that we stand up and raise awareness and speak about these issues."
Sexual Harassment Must Never Be Tolerated!
"I personally feel that any kind of abuse should not be exercised or tolerated and there should be systems in place that will allow people to speak about it fearlessly. There is nothing worse than having that lack of a safe foundation that results in a person being fearful to speak up and living life suppressing what happened because they fear some consequence to talking about it. Nothing can be worse than that," she summed it up to IANS.
