Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time Out -

Ac­tor Kerry Wash­ing­ton (right) has made a plea to women to stand by each other in or­der to bring about a change in the sys­tem.

At a re­cently held film fes­ti­val, the 39-year-old ac­tor called on women to sup­port each other, re­ported Fe­male­first. “(Progress) will take courage on all of our parts. Some­times the peo­ple who are in charge of those rooms, they want us to feel lucky to be in the room. And we are lucky be­cause we’re all re­ally blessed to be do­ing what we do... But that doesn’t mean that I don’t get to bring other peo­ple with me,” she said.

“Be­ing alone in the room is ex­haust­ing... You feel like you have to stand up for the en­tire gen­der or race. A woman who shouts out other women? That’s just some­thing we all have to do,” she added. A WOMAN WHO SHOUTS OUT OTHER WOMEN? THAT’S JUST SOME­THING WE ALL HAVE TO DO, SAYS KERRY WASH­ING­TON
