Priyanka Chopra recently graced the 10th Annual Women in the World Summit in New York wherein she spoke about many important issues affecting women across the world. One such subject was the issue of sexual harassment. The wave of the Me Too movement which had hit Bollywood too last year had brought out many sexual offenders from the industry so it came as no surprise when the actress spoke on this grave issue. Priyanka revealed, “Sexual harassment had become a norm with women. Now, because of the support we are giving each other, people don't have the power to shut us down. And that's an incredibly powerful thing to see.”

Last year, many prominent names like Nana Patekar, Sajid Khan, Alok Nath, Vikas Bahl and many others got embroiled in the Me Too controversy which further encouraged many women from the industry to come out with their story. Priyanka revealed that she has also not gone unscathed by the clutches of sexual harassment. She further went on to say, “Everybody in this room has probably faced one because it had become a norm with women. We always had a voice. Just nobody heard us. Now if I have a story I don't feel I am alone anymore - and I am not ashamed of it.”

Earlier when Tanushree Dutta became the flag bearer of this movement and encouraged several other women from the industry to speak up about this issue, PeeCee being the role model for many in the industry also broke her silence on the issue. She had stated, ““I think people have misunderstood the #MeToo movement if they restrict it only to the film industry. It's not only ki film industry mein aisi cheez hoti hai. Har job mein hoti hai. Jo mere saath hua hai, woh bohot pehle hua hai. Aisa nahi hai ki Dangal ke time hua hai ya uske baad. It happened when I was very young. I think people assuming that it's very current and wondering why I am not talking about it... that's a lot of expectation. Every woman in our country has dealt with it and I'm sure not everyone wants to talk about it publicly.”

Lol Anonymous, seems like you are 1 person who has posted 10 comments! Hater much? Are you a DP fan or a gay person?

There is always an agenda to anything she says or does. Nothing genuine about her. Only fools fall for this crap!

She will say anything and what ever furthers her, makes news and she is a smart cookie. It is working.

Sexual harssment is thr for Indian women in a big way, whether educated or not. Does not matter. Many are abused everyday. Like in my case, police in Kolkata is torturing me.

She’s faced everything, you name it. At this point, she’s nothing but a joke.

She lies when she opens her mouth. She only wants to stay in a good light so she bubbles the crap what ppl want to hear. Learned by her lover SRK.

PC is extremely smart and brilliant..she is eyeing to be a talk show host ..focusing only on women plus movies.... She will say whateverfurthers her.
She is calculated and has an extremely great PR agency. Nothing wrong , she is not harming anyone ...she is doing what she needs to move ahead in this competitive world.

Iam noticing priyanka & srk's post are coming together.

They post together here, they tweet together, they are on Insta together.....they ARE STILL together. Already confirmed in India.

monkey she is brownie liar

cartoon---shes the one who abused SRK and AK amongst others.

Why this attention addicted woman must post every BS she talked several times? Come on PV,how much does she pays you?

May be that was the reason she became a homebreaker.

She is letting out titbits of her life . Thats enough PR .

She never said this before. western media is a different for her. This where she is launching her next move and saying all sorts of things. shame on her.

Like Akki and SRK also. Think about this two esp, darling!

Priyanka did great at the summit. On point

Title is misleading

Now this is interesting. She has always said i feel bad for those but i have never had that! Wow and sad. Disgusted that she didn't support Tanushree then and climbed the bandwagon tho.

She actually didn’t comment on Tanushree at all. And Sexual harassment is faced by every woman in India whether at work, on the road or in homes. That is the harsh reality and if you are not harassed then misogynistic comments are made. So I’m glad with any celebrity coming out with this.

What's new? She lies and manipulates ppl always.

You’re twisting this into something it’s not, get a life
