The Supreme Court's Monday order, that the Cine Costume Makeup Artists and Hairdressers Association open its doors to women members, sets right a terrible wrong that had prevailed for years. It is amazing that the Indian film industry, considered among the greatest social levellers, should have patronised the gender discrimination so blatantly and for so long. What made it worse was the reason the association gave: That the entry of women into its fold would adversely impact the employment prospects of male members. One would have thought that the film industry, which recognises nothing but success, would be open to competition so that the best ones may flourish. Job opportunities would have been a problem for those males makeup artists who would have failed to match the exacting standards. Imagine the howls of protest if there had been a rule that only women could be choreographers in Indian films since men had no business to get into a field of activity which was associated with the fair sex. . . .
