#MeToo movement gaining momentum is good sign: Aishwarya
Mumbai Oct 9 (IANS) Celebrated actress and former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan looks at the #MeToo movement gaining momentum as a positive sign and she believes that talking on women empowerment should be a continuous process.
"I think it is a good sign how the #MeToo movement is gaining momentum. However I would refrain to comment on any specific case as that would be irresponsible on our part. At least some of these cases would become sub judice soon. So I don t think it would be proper to talk about any particular incident " Aishwarya told the media on Tuesday.
The actress was present along with designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee for the launch of the new makeup line festival collection named "L Oreal Paris X Sabyasachi Calcutta" for the special media interaction.
Referring to the cosmetic brand L Oreal she said: "We started the We Worth It award and I became the poster girl of that. I came on board because we are speaking for women giving them a platform for appreciation of their efforts by a wider audience."
The 44-year-old actress believes that speaking up for women to help them find a voice is a continuous process and that the social media is helping them find an audience to share their story.
The "Guru" fame actress said: "I have spoken and will continue to when it comes to speaking for women...ever since I have got the microphone in my hand right from the platform of Miss World (pageant).
"Since the world is becoming a smaller space where social media is bringing people closer and anyone from any part of the world can share their story and find interested people to listen to them " said the mother of a six-year-old daughter.
