It takes courage to speak publicly about it. Therefore you must consider what this person is saying.

Deepika said that Mee Too movement is not about gender and it is about the victory of right over wrong. She said, “I feel #MeToo movement is not about gender. It’s about the victory of right over wrong. I think anyone who faces any sort of discrimination or any sort of abuse, we as people must support that person. It’s not about a woman or a man or female vs male. Let’s not complicate or get confused in any manner. It’s never about gender.” Also Read - El Classico: Lionel Messi Seen Shivering Before Real Madrid vs Barcelona LaLiga Clash | WATCH VIDEO
