Kochi: Screenwriter and actor Renji Panicker says that we are living in a society where laws should be brought in to give importance to women. He was talking to a private media regarding the issue of political correctness.
Renji Panicker questioned, “Are there no incidents that happen against women in our society? Aren’t many things happening in our society that is against humanity itself? Isn’t our society biased against women? In a society filled with diverse viewpoints, what is considered politically correct? Is it regarded as anti-feminist if the language commonly spoken by everyday people is used in films?”
Portraying themes that challenge humanity have always been one of the subjects of cinema. When it is said that the scene of attacking women should not be shown in the movie, filmmakers often attempt to show it in a suggestive way. How many women are there in the Politburo of the party that claims to be the most progressive party, asks Renji Panicker.
“How many female chief ministers have we had? States like Gujarat, Goa, Uttar Pradesh, and Tamil Nadu have seen women holding the position of Chief Minister. We often claim to be a progressive society, but it’s clear that women still face challenges in our society. Isn’t every house misogynistic? There is no equal pay for men and women in some workplaces in Kerala and that is anti-women. The film was not imported from the moon,” Renji Panicker said highlighting the need to address these issues within our own society.
