Talking about how famous personalities are now coming out to share their past experiences, Ayesha thinks it is very brave of them and it would definitely help others to talk about their traumas as well.
Right now we are talking about people who are a little known because they usually get noticed. If an average person makes claims, not many people will talk about it.
If anybody in any phase of life gets the courage to talk about something, I think its commendable and it is a very brave movement.
Ayesha clarified that the #MeToo movement might have been exploited by some people but it wasn’t meant for that.
And, it might have been exploited as well but the movement’s intention itself was not to exploit at all.
The actress further talked about being sexually harassed but she doesn’t have the courage to talk about it yet.
Ayesha Omar hopes to get the courage to talk about it someday but she can relate to the trauma of everyone who has been a victim.
Because I have been through harassment in my life and career, I understand how it feels. I don’t have the courage to talk about it yet, maybe someday I will but I can totally relate to everybody who has been through it.
It can take one 20 years, another only one, while for some it takes two minutes. People can come out whenever.
