COIMBATORE: The #MeToo Movement has helped women to come out and disclose their agonies on the issue of sexual harassment and no woman is making allegations for publicity, says Tamil film actor Kasthuri. 

After inaugurating 'Diva', an exclusive women's 'Signature Day spa and saloon' in Coimbatore, the actor who has been noted for voicing her opinions strongly, said, “women including film actresses, who recently came out with stories of sexual harassment as part of the #MeToo campaign are not doing it for publicity.” 

 

She further added, “No woman wants infamy by making false sexual allegations against men. Many women do not reveal sexual harassment since people usually malign them if they do. They have been suffering in silence and living in anguish for many years.”

The actor elaborated her point saying, "If a woman faces sexual harassment, she wants to side-step the problem immediately and is not ready to file a complaint. People should not find fault with women when they reveal such incidents after many years. People should question the sexual harasser."

The spa began with choreographer Karun Raman's fashion show. The salon was opened by Kasthuri along with Rithisha Niveda 'United Nations Ambassador 2018' in the presence of Ramesh, managing director of 'Diva Signature Day spa and saloon'.
