Women makeup artists get toehold in tinseltown
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. . . .
