Ac­tresses quit over as­sault

The Straits Times - - BRIEFING -

Four In­dian movie ac­tresses have re­signed from an ac­tors’ as­so­ci­a­tion in Ker­ala over a male ac­tor’s al­leged in­volve­ment in the ab­duc­tion and sex­ual as­sault of an ac­tress in Fe­bru­ary last year. Their move has made scep­tics take no­tice of the grow­ing de­mand for gen­der equal­ity in the south In­dian state’s film in­dus­try.
