Sonakshi Sinha: Women are ashamed of repercussions when they speak on sexual harassment at workplace
Sexual harassment at work has become a topic of discussion amongst everybody ever since The Viral Fever’s CEO Arunabh Kumar has been allegedly accused of molesting women. Many celebrities like Twinkle Khanna have come forward and spoken about the issue which is very grave.
Another actor who recently spoke about sexual harassment in the workplace is Sonakshi Sinha.
She said to a leading daily, “Sexual harassment at work is neglected by women as they do not wish to come openly about their experience. Women are still ashamed of the repercussions that will come their way when they speak about it. I also feel that women still feel they will be blamed for whatever has happened to them like it is happening right now. Until and unless women support each other and stand by each other, that will not change.”
She also spoke about how the government can help. She said, “It should be made very important for the government to take an initiative where they make women understand that you are not at fault if something like this happens to you. So that they can have the courage to come up and share their not so good experiences with the concerned authorities in order to enable them to get justice at least.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Sonakshi will next be seen in Noor. The movie is directed by Sunhil Sippy and is slated to release on April 21, 2017. The movie also stars Purab Kohli, Kanan Gill and Shibani Dandekar.
