'Game of Thrones' star Sophie Turner reveals how Sansa Stark's character connects her to 'Me Too' 19.6.2018 DNA: Top News
Game of Thrones  star Sophie Turner says the story arc of her character Sansa Stark resembles to the advent of the #MeToo campaign. The 22-year-old actor, who plays the eldest Stark daughter in the HBO's epic fantasy show, said like many women who have raised their voices after having suffered sexual abuse for years, her Sansa gradually took charge of the situation. "It's funny the way (my storyline) is kind of mirroring what's happening in real life, in every industry right now. It's really interesting how all of these women who were subjected to a lot of horror and oppression are taking a stand against the people who have done this to them. "I think that's why I connected with the #MeToo movement so much. Not just because of being a woman and obviously being a feminist, but also that character," Turner told Screen International. From being a meek girl who was abused by King Joffrey Baratheon and Ramsay Bolton, Sansa has grown to become a woman in control of her own destiny. "She's used everything she's ...

Huma Qureshi on MeToo campaign: It's not going to happen in Bollywood until senior actresses speak up 18.6.2018 DNA: Top News
Actor Huma Qureshi believes the #MeToo campaign worked in Hollywood because a lot of senior female actors came forward with their stories of sexual harassment, something which has not happened in the Hindi film industry. The campaign, which sparked off a movement in Hollywood late last year, top actors like Gwyneth Paltrow, Salma Hayek, Angelina Jolie, along with people from other walks of life shared their stories of sexual abuse. In contrast, only a handful of Bollywood stars have spoken about sexual harassment prevalent in the industry and that too without taking any names. Asked if it was disheartening that the movement never arrived in Bollywood, Qureshi told PTI, "It's not going to happen (in Bollywood) and the reason is, it worked in Hollywood because a lot of senior and respected actresses spoke about it. That's what really gives the #MeToo movement a lot of momentum. I really hope and pray it happens in India. But I feel we should not wait for this campaign to happen just in the film industry, ...

Labour that we fail to see 16.6.2018 Hindu: Diet & Nutrition
On Saturday, yet another International Domestic Workers’ Day passed by. The day was largely forgotten, just as the millions who toil in homesteads as ‘domestic help,’ with pittance for pay and, often enduring physical, mental and sexual harassment, were. India is one of the countries that are yet to ratify the International Labour Organisation’s Convention on Decent Work for Domestic Workers. Although work on a draft national policy for domestic workers began years ago, nothing has happened so far.
