We live in the 21st century. Right? In this era, women are breaking all the stereotypes to walk equal to men. They have been vocal in sharing their physical and sexual harassment boldly in public and #Metoo campaign is an example of it. But, for speaking their mind against the crime Bollywood actress Richa Chadha was questioned for why she never takes names and when actress Kangana Ranaut spoke she was called ‘crazy’ by few people.

Yet another similar incident has come to light. The South Indian actress, Parvathy recently at the International Film Festival of Kerala shared her views on the dialogues of Malayalam actor Mammootty’s film Kasaba as she found it to be sexist and misogynist.

“I, unfortunately, watched Kasaba. With all due respects to the technicians who worked in the film. I was definitely disappointed to watch an actor (Mammootty) par excellence, happen to say dialogues to a woman in a scene which was not only derogatory but most saddening.” This is what ‘Qarib Qarib Singlle actress Parvathy who starred opposite Irfan Khan said.

"You may write me down in history With your bitter, twisted lies, You may trod me in the very dirt But still, like dust, I'll rise. Does my sassiness upset you? Why are you beset with gloom? ’Cause I walk like I've got oil wells Pumping in my living room. Just like moons and like suns, With the certainty of tides, Just like hopes springing high, Still I'll rise. Did you want to see me broken? Bowed head and lowered eyes? Shoulders falling down like teardrops, Weakened by my soulful cries? Does my haughtiness offend you? Don't you take it awful hard ’Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines Diggin’ in my own backyard. You may shoot me with your words, You may cut me with your eyes, You may kill me with your hatefulness, But still, like air, I’ll rise. Does my sexiness upset you? Does it come as a surprise That I dance like I've got diamonds At the meeting of my thighs? Out of the huts of history’s shame I rise Up from a past that’s rooted in pain I rise I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide, Welling and swelling I bear in the tide. Leaving behind nights of terror and fear I rise Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear I rise Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave, I am the dream and the hope of the slave. I rise I rise I rise." -Maya Angelou

The 29-year-old filed a police complaint against all the online trolls. The cops were quick in taking action and arrested one person for cyberbullying.

“This is now much bigger than me. It’s not about me only. It’s about how women are treated when they respectfully put forward a different opinion. We’ve been silenced for years. I have been in this industry for eleven years and I must thank the fans for their support,” this is what she said in a conversation with NDTV.
