Ashley Judd Says James Franco’s Response To Misconduct Allegations Is ‘Terrific’
James Franco recently responded to sexual assault and misconduct claims against him, telling Stephen Colbert that he needs to work on himself. Apparently, it was good enough for one of the leaders in the #MeToo movement, Ashley Judd.
“I think that what James said is terrific,” Ashely said to the BBC. “And I think that we’ve all behaved, at a certain level, unconsciously, and done things that were insensitive, inappropriate, without necessarily understanding that they were. I mean, we’ve all operated with a certain amount of tone deafness, and I like the culpability, and we have to have restorative justice.”
She added, “This is about men and women being all together and having a more equitable and just workplace, home life, social spaces. I mean, we know that when women are empowered in the workplace and are in decision-making positions that workplaces have better financial outcomes and there’s less harassment when there is more diversity. And it takes that kind of individual accountability to collectively make the change on a large scale.”
