The Women in Cinema Collective (WCC) has been in the forefront while making their stand clear on important issues that are happening in the society. The WCC had recently filed a PIL at the Kerala High Court for ensuring safety of women at the workplace. WCC has also been wholeheartedly in support of the #MeToo movement.
The latest statement published by WCC is believed by many to be in support of the Supreme Court verdict allowing women of all ages to enter Sabarimala. However, WCC has not used the word ‘Sabarimala’ in their post.
Here is the WCC statement:
"Women in Cinema Collective stands by the constitution of India.
We support all initiatives that acknowledge the dignity of women.”
As Kerala is facing a tumultuous situation with certain parties and groups opposing the entry of women between 10 to 50, the statement by WCC is considered a progressive step. Of course, those who disagree have already started posting angry reactions.
