Taapsee Pannu, who played an admirable role for women after her film well known Pink (2016), may be got influenced by her part & has now decided to stand up for women rights. Taapsee has launched a new helpline system to assist women in the regions of harassment and mental distress. It is launched in right time, given the much-talked molestation allegations by ex-employees of The Viral Fever (TVF), against their founder-CEO Arunabh Kumar has flames all over the media.
Discussing the helpline, Taapsee said-It is a thoughtful initiative for all working women, especially in the events, media industry, and entertainment. It is not just a step towards making the working environment secure for women, but also in making the world a better & secure place to live in.
According to the report, several professional counselors have been brought on board in order to provide guidance to the complainants/victims. All the calls will be redirected to the helpline number (01149694998) and these calls will be received by trained executives and then they will be further redirected to the counselors.
Helpline curator Sabbas Joseph told a section of media that-We desire to create an environment where women can deliver to their maximum potential. Womenfolk in advertising, media, and entertainment are both role models as well as influencers. It is a profound & positive step towards making lives of working women easier.
Taapsee has always stood for women rights & has been working for the betterment of women since long. She recently spoke to a website about her Women’s Day video on cleavage and made a statement that- If You Find My Cleavage Attractive, Why Should It Bother Me?
