Noting that crimes against women and a girl child were shockingly rising every year, especially sex crimes, Justice N Kirubakaran batted for urgent measures to stop such heinous offences and asked the governments to explore giving gadgets to women.

The judge also raised several queries vis-a-vis rising sex crimes against women, to be answered by the central and state governments and the National Commission for Women (NCW). He impleaded the central government and the NCW in the case and directed them to file response ...

Weinstein made me blacklist Judd, Sorvino, says Peter Jackson 16.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Entertainment
Director Peter Jackson has claimed Harvey Weinstein designed a "smear campaign" against Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvino, that discouraged him to offer roles to the two actors who were one of the first women to openly accuse the disgraced media mogul of sexual harassment. The 56-year-old filmmaker said he was unaware of the allegations against Weinstein while working him on projects including "The Hobbit" and "LOTR" trilogy, but was wary of collaborating again. "I recall Miramax telling us they were a nightmare to work with and we should avoid them at all costs. This was probably in 1998. At the time, we had no reason to question what these guys were telling us - but in hindsight, I realise that this was very likely the Miramax smear campaign in full swing. "I now suspect we were fed false information about both of these talented women (Judd and Sorvino) - and as a direct result their names were removed from our casting list," Jackson told New Zealands Stuff in an interview. The filmmaker described Weinstein ...
