Freida Pinto recently shared the Mee too Movement in which she said that for her it is rejecting the movies with the abusers involved in this.Freida has been one of the few successful Indian actors in the west.
“I refuse to work with someone that I know is a repeat offender. I wish I could do the same here (in India),” Freida said, after acknowledging that the society in the west and the system in Hollywood empowers its actors far more than what Hindi cinema does for its women.
“The whole MeToo movement in the west was possible because there was a lot of support, and a lot of research went into it. We all know who the people are in India. It is the same way everyone knew it was Harvey Weinstein in Hollywood, but someone had the courage, and in this case Ronan Farrow (journalist with The New Yorker) to get deep into his research and get support for these women and support them when that story would come out. You tell me one journalist in India who would do that and put his career on the line,” the actor said.

I'm honoured to be included as a #CQwomanofpurpose, and love that @catherinequin has reimagined the It girl by celebrating strong women who live their lives with intention, determination and grace. 25% percent of proceeds from this initiative will benefit @womenforwomenuk, an organization that provides educational and financial support to the survivors of war and poverty.

“The girls that came out first after the MeToo movement were the girls who had experienced something and were not working already. The girls that are active here came out much later. The known actresses should be grateful and thankful to the ones who had the courage to come out,” she said.
