നThe WCC has come out with a new response to the incident in which T was attacked. “The confidence and courage shown by our sister, a survivor, during these five years of extraordinary and extreme trauma is absolutely commendable and exemplary,” the organization said in a note shared on Facebook. Not to mention the frustration of not being supported in the way of survival, at the right time, and in the right way.
The full version of the Facebook post
Even when those around us are bowing their heads in fear, the fact that we are able to hold our heads high is absolutely indicative of our self-esteem. The confidence and courage shown by our sister, the survivor, during these five years of going through extraordinary and extreme trauma is absolutely admirable and exemplary.
The extensive support received for our sister’s words yesterday from Malayalam cinema, foreign language cinema and other fields is commendable. Not to mention the frustration of not getting the support we needed on the path to survival, at the right time.
We are compelled on this occasion to ask in what way this support and respect which is now said to be given should be interpreted. Are Malayalam filmmakers ready to apply POSH guidelines in their workplaces instead of sharing posts on social media? Are organizations and communities doing anything to ensure equal opportunities for women in the workplace and ensure equality! Are our male colleagues, using their current decisive influence and power, preparing for permanent and lasting alliances to ensure that women have a fair, healthy and safe working environment and that they are not marginalized! This is the support we need. We deserve this kind of consideration.
During this time, the love and gratitude for each and every one of the survivors and those who stood by the WCC. We do not intend to go backwards in our efforts to bring about progressive and systematic changes in the field of Malayalam cinema. The support of each and every one of you on this journey is invaluable.
I sincerely hope and hope that more people will be able to participate in our struggle for a non-partisan, equitable and secure working environment.
