- Following assault on a Malayalam actress, Kollywood actor Varalakshmi Sarathkumar hit out at men who look at women as piece of meat
- She said men should stop thinking from their genitals and start looking at women as equal human beings
- Here is the complete detail of the letter she posted on Twitter
In the letter, which Varalakshmi Sarathkumar has posted on Twitter, she says that programming head of a TV channel had asked her to meet outside after the interview. When asked if was related to work, he answered her that ‘No not for work… For other things’.
Varalakshmi has given a befitting reply to those who think of women as a piece of meat and have a ready statement, “Film industry is like this. You knew so when you joined. Why complain now or act surprised.” To this, she says, “I have not come to the industry to be treated like a piece of meat or to follow the standards of exploitation of women already practised. I love acting, it is my profession of choice. I work hard, and I am good at my work. I certainly do not want to choose either option ‘Put up with it or Quit.”
She says, all this needs to be said. Continuing, she says, instead of lecturing women on how to speak, what to wear, men should stop thinking from their genitals and should start looking at women as a quest human being.
It’s not just the film industry, women from all strata and age face this problem. It is an issue that is inbred in our male dominated society where women are objectified and treated as less than equal.
She ends her letter with if we don’t act now “SafetyForWomen will be just a dream.
