Sources from Kerala stated that the Women in Cinema Collective (WCC) has filed a writ petition in the Kerala High Court seeking the establishment of a grievance redressal mechanism against sexual harassment, in line with the Vishaka Guidelines laid down by the Supreme Court and the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013.

Meanwhile the petitioners are the WCC and its president cum actor Rima Kallingal, and the respondents are the state of Kerala, Special Secretary of Women and Child Development, and the Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes (AMMA). As per report the petition says, “The failure of the 3rd Respondent (AMMA) to implement a grievance redressal mechanism for its members against sexual harassment at the workplace leaves its members helpless and without any adequate remedy against sexual harassment directed against them in the professional context. Meanwhile this omission of the 3rd Respondent Association is striking at a time when revelations of widespread sexual assault and harassment of women in film industries across the country have come out.”

Further it said “The 3rd Respondent Association’s omission violates the member’s fundamental rights under Articles 14, 15, 19 and 21 of the Constitution of India. Moreover the nature of the work undertaken by actor artistes is such that they have no alternatives to seek similar redressal".
