The Variety and UN Women Panel Discussion, was a platform where stars and key female producers shared their own experiences of industry sexism and called on studios, audiences and journalists to demand change.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan shared the centre stage along with the likes of Salma Hayek and Parker Posey, where these ladies hit back at gender inequality.

Aishwarya bonded well with Salma Hayek, who was also one of the panelists. Along with them, Carol producers Christine Vachon and Elizabeth Karlsen also participated in the discussion.cannes-27“We deserve entertainment for us, not our children or husbands. I am a feminist because a lot of amazing women have made me who I am today.” stated a very stern Salma Hayek at the panel discussion.

She even stated that her experiences battling prejudice against Hispanic people had taught her the one colour Hollywood doesn’t ignore is green. She firmly believes that women have the power to save their film industry that is collapsing and they cannot stand as victims. Phew!! What a loaded statement that was.

Parker Posey, who co-stars in Woody Allen’s Irrational Man, suggested that far for being in a progressive era, they live in very masculine times. The culture is eating nature and is overpowering storytelling. Movies are turning into games, something that needs to finally stop.

The actor echoed the sadness of others on the panel that the romcom was no longer a respected genre and cinema in general lacks content.cannes-25The event was co-hosted by the UN Women’s HeForShe campaign, and moderated by Variety Co-Editor-In-Chief Claudia Eller and UN Women head Elizabeth Nyamayaro.

Variety publisher Michelle Sobrino welcomed the crowd at the Radisson Blu Hotel.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who has been the ambassador for L’Oreal, the official cosmetic brand at Cannes Film Festival for years has become a common face at the French Riviera.
