#MeToo: Milind Soman urges men in the fashion industry to come out and talk
We all think #MeToo movement is only restricted to women and rightly so, as many women cutting across industries have openly named and shamed their predators in public, but India’s supermodel and fitness enthusiast Milind Soman has said that men in the fashion industry also face sexual harassment and he knows that it exists. Milind though also said that he has never been subjected to any sexual harassment in his career.
Talking on the subject Milind Soman in an interview to Republic TV said, “When I started modelling, of course everybody today talks about casting couch concept in films and fashion as well but when I started, fashion was such a new industry that all of us were starting out together so there was no position of power or something like that could encourage this kind of an incident. For me, I was never subjected to this but I know it exists because people talk to me about it.”
Talking on Me Too movement Milind further added, “I think it’s very good. It is definitely something which is needed. Women and even men, in the fashion industry I would say that even men need to come out and talk about it because when we talk about the predatory aspect of the people in power, it is something that needs more awareness.”
Milind Soman has always believed in living a straightforward life and doesn’t care about what society thinks of him and is known to live his life on own terms.
