Hollywood actress Nicole Kidman extended her views on the '#MeToo' movement and said that it is not just about sexual harassment, and covers many other aspects. The actress, who spoke about the movement that went viral last year, said that the revolution covered various issues like gender, parity, and sexual harassment significantly at the workplace.
Denoting it as a massive movement, the actress said that it was a strong stand against sexual harassment in the industry. Drawing attention towards the prevalence of the of sexual assault and harassment, especially at a workplace, Nicole said that it was a big step taken to ensure respect, equality, decency in the industry. The actress further stated that the movement had a strong stand on gender equality so that people can move forward regardless of their gender with just a little bit more balance.
The '#MeToo' movement went viral on social media in October 2017 following the sexual misconduct allegations against renowned producer Harvey Weinstein.
The initiative was taken up by American actress Alyssa Milano who encouraged the victims of sexual assault to raise their voice against the inappropriate actions and asked them to tweet about their experiences using the hashtag to give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem.
Kidman, who is known to be a feminist, has always been vocal about the issues concerning women's safety and gender equality, particularly in Hollywood. In her 2018 Screen Actors Guild (SAG) speech, she spoke about the status of women in Hollywood and said that the industry should continue to support female characters and promote female stories.
On the work front, Kidman is currently promoting her film 'Destroyer' which reportedly tells the story of a female detective Erin Bell, who is working for a cultish gang in California undercover. The crime thriller film is helmed by filmmaker Karyn Kusama and will be jointly produced by Fred Berger, Phil Hay, and Matt Manfredi. Besides Nicole Kidman, the film also stars Toby Kebbell, Tatiana Maslany, Bradley Whitford and Sebastian Stan. 'Destroyer' had its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival on August 31, 2018, and is all set to hit the theaters on December 25, 2018.
