  • Women artists of Malayalam cinema meeting Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan

The WICC members met Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Thursday in connection with the association's launch.

The women professionals from the film industry in the state have got together in a new body named Women's Collective in Cinema, the first such organisation for women, including actresses and technicians, associated with the Malayalam film industry.

"Beena Paul, Manju Warrier, Rima Kallingal, Parvathy, Vidhu Vincent, Sajitha Mathilathu, Deedi Damodaran, Fouziya Fatima, Remya Namishan, Zanora Philip, Anjali Menon, Asha Joseph, and Indu Namboothiri have come up with a newly formed Women's Collective in cinema".

They say that women's basic human rights are being denied in the film industry too.

Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has said that a committee will be formed to study the problems faced by women working in the film industry, and actions will be taken to solve those problems identified by this committee. Their recommendations included formation of a cell to address sexual harassments in shooting sets. If women's participation in the technical aspects of film industry is going to increase, there should be a way to examine the types of workers who are working on the sets, and what their history is. "They will set an example and hire more women in their movies", Rima said.

Statements made by AMMA in connection with the recent abduction and molestation of a popular actress in Kochi had triggered voices of dissent from within the industry, for their patriarchal tone. It was only the first reported incident.
