Jodie Foster: ‘Every man above 30″ should be “thinking on their part’ in sexual harassment

Jodie Foster spoke about the recent allegations of sexual misconduct against prominent men, and what they hoped the #MetToo movement will change in the future.


Jodie Foster is the calling of every man above 30 to “begin to think about their part” in the middle of the whole series of accusations of sexual harassment in recent months.

The 55-year-old actress spoke with USA Today about the sexual harassment scandal and how she is interested in people’s point of view.

“We are at a turning point,” Foster said. “This part is painful, This is a beautiful, amazing stories, that take into account everyone’s part. I am really interested and looking for the man seen, and what comes next in terms of therapy.”

Foster added that “practically every man over 30 has to really look and think about their part” in sexual harassment.

“And I guarantee, a lot of the unconscious,” she said. “When you are already in a privileged position where you haven’t had to look at your part, that you are not 100 percent correct that you are in a bubble. It is an interesting time for the man.”

Foster spoke about her two sons, aged 16 and 19, and their understanding of the consent that they learned in school.

“They go to a great school, that they through the press, about what consent is, what is humanism, what is integrity. I wish my generation had the benefit of that, and everyone has had the benefit of that,” she said.

Foster said she hopes that the #MeToo movement, which has the competence of women to come forward about the past of alleged sexual misconduct by powerful men, will lead to “a kind of truth and reconciliation” in the future.

“I’m looking for a new millennial woman who knows she can say no,” Foster told USA Today.

“But to be honest, I think that what most women want is just for it to stop,” she continued. “They don’t really want to file a lawsuit, they don’t want to have to go on ‘CBS this morning’ 400 times. They would really just want that it stops and that you the good part.”
