Mar­got Rob­bie proud to be a woman

The Gulf Today - Panorama - - Books -

Ac­tress Mar­got Rob­bie says she is proud to be a woman after get­ting a “sup­port­ive” re­sponse in the wake of the sex­ual ha­rass­ment al­le­ga­tions against pro­ducer Har­vey We­in­stein. Rob­bie, 27, has praised the re­silience of the women who have come for­ward to ac­cuse the dis­graced pro­ducer of sex­ual mis­con­duct. She says the at­ti­tude from other Hol­ly­wood stars who want to make a change in the way women are treated has made her “proud to be a woman.”

“Women are so re­silient and I think the re­sponse to the whole We­in­stein sit­u­a­tion kind of proved that. To me, when I think of women, I think the word that sums up women so well but isn’t used as of­ten as it should be is ‘re­silient,’” she said.

“It’s as­tound­ing how quickly ev­ery­one piv­oted from be­ing heart­bro­ken about the news to, how do we move for­ward? How can we move for­ward? What good can come out of this? Ev­ery­one was so sup­port­ive im­me­di­ately and then au­to­mat­i­cally look­ing to the fu­ture, which made me even more proud to be a woman,” she added. This comes after the Sui­cide Squad star praised her co-star Cara Delev­ingne for open­ing up about the or­deal she claimed she en­dured at the hands of We­in­stein.
