Saloni Chopra wrote in the caption, “If you are someone that actually, genuinely wants to support the women who spoke up – WORK WITH THEM. You have no idea how hard it is for women to be hired when people in the industry “don’t want trouble” (but will work with the accused). I have friends who chose silence instead, to save their jobs. And if you are someone who spoke up during MeToo, I I know how deeply debilitating this is. At first I thought I wouldn’t speak… honestly, I was conflicted because “if you want to work, then don’t bite the hands that feed you”.”
“But fu*k that. Bite them harder. Better yet, become the hands that feed yourself. I asked myself what I would lose if I spoke; and what would I gain if I stayed silent? Eventually @schoujar and @rahulb90 made me realise that I had to do what *I wanted*… I cannot control the future, but I want to be able to live with myself,” read a few lines from her caption.
