'#MeToo Is Great, Will Work If We Start Listening,' Says Sushmita

Actress Sushmita Sen, a former beauty queen and a mother of two, recently addressed the #MeToo movement, which has shocked and stirred the Hindi film industry with the harrowing accounts of the survivors. Speaking to news agency IANS at a recent event, Ms Sen said that by hearing out the accounts of the survivors, more women should be 'encouraged' to speak out. 'Overlooking' the much-needed movement is not an option at all, she added.

"Though the (#MeToo) movement is copied from the West, it doesn't mean we will overlook it. It feels great that women are coming out and speaking about the harassment. As a part of society, people should listen to their stories and not judge them," IANS quoted Ms Sen as saying.
