Actress Swara Bhaskar, who has been a supporter of India’s #MeToo movement, says that sexual harassment cases at the workplace are like an epidemic. She hopes to bring awareness about it via the film and television industry. The Cine and TV Artists Association (CINTAA) recently announced that it will be setting up committees to tackle sexual harassment in the industry and will have actors Swara Bhasker, Renuka Shahane and Raveena Tandon among others as members.
Talking about her role in the committee, Swara said, “I am part of a sub-committee which is formed by CINTAA which will conduct a workshop regarding awareness against sexual harassment at the workplace for its members.
We have a total of 24 unions in our industry and it has more than 5 lakh members in it so we will try to work together on this front with these unions.” “When you hear about #MeToo stories then, you will realize that cases of sexual harassment at the workplace are like an epidemic. It is like a disease so, awareness regarding that is really important so through this sub-committee, we will generate awareness among our members,” said the actress, who was at The Wedding Junction Show 2018 here.
