Women in Cinema Collective is an organization that was formed as a response to the assault of an actor in Malayalam cinema. It was only after this issue that women in the cine field started to discuss about a panel before which they could present complaints of sexual harassment.
This move was not only meant to deal with complaints, it was the beginning of a new journey. Actors Parvathy, Rima Kallingal, filmmakers Vidhu Vincent, Geethu Mohandas and Suma Josson, Screenwriter Deedi Damodaran, cinematographers Fowzia Fathima and Mahim as well as author Meena Pillai pointed out one issue that is how many women get to decide which movie to watch. The women usually missed out on the politics of viewing as they were busy cooking and bringing up children.
