Anoushey Ashraf talks about “women with odd jobs, molested” in showbiz
Anoushey Ashraf talks about gender inequality in showbiz when she was a radio jockey.
Talk with L’Express Tribune in an interview, Anoushey looked back on her days as RJ and revealed how “less privileged” women were assaulted and given odd jobs.
“I might know how to pronounce a little better, I guess, especially since I have a background in communication,” Ashraf told The Express Tribune. “I’m an RJ, I’ve been a VJ, and I’ve had nice conversations with people ranging from a Maulana to Qandeel Baloch. So my goal has always been to understand instead of arguing.
“We were also less vulnerable. However, the women around us, who came from relatively less privileged households, were regularly assaulted, offered, made less money and odd jobs, ”recalled the celebrity.
Anoushey then understood how important it is for someone to step in and speak when they see poorly, even if they are not directly affected by it.
“If you are not affected by a problem, you are part of the problem. And if you see oppression, have space with you to condemn it, and you don’t, you are wrong, ”Anoushey said.
