Tisca Chopra Just Said That "Women Are Just As Much To Blame" For Sexual Assault

"I’m going to be very categorical when I say that women are just as much to blame, because they put themselves in those vulnerable positions."

The claims of these women, coupled with other women coming forward against Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein, have jumpstarted the ever on-going conversations of sexual assault and harassment faced by women.

Twitter

The revelations came more into focus after actress Alyssa Milano tweeted to other women, asking them to come forward with their own encounters of sexual assault with the phrase "me too". The phrase became a global movement with thousands, if not millions, of women coming forward.

In a move to understand how prevalent sexual harassment is in Bollywood, The Print asked several people involved in the industry about their experiences and thoughts about sexual assault.

They spoke to a wide variety of people including actresses Kalki Koechlin, Swara Bhaskar, film critic Rajeev Masand, and screenwriter Advaita Kala.

One of the people who was part of The Prints piece was actress Tisca Chopra, who pretty much claimed that women voluntarily put themselves in a vulnerable position and are to be blamed for their own assault.
