Benedict Cumberbatch is very clear: men must question themselves and radically change their behavior towards women. And that goes for “all men”.
“We have to change the behavior of men and, in order to do that, we have to kind of lift the lid. It seems to me that’s the right thing to do. And it is all the more important in a world which asks questions and finally points the finger at the insufficiencies ”, he declared to Sky News (relayed by The Times), while promoting his new film, Power of The Dog.
The actor notes that, if the “survivors” can “speak today”, the “recognition of the abuses is not enough”. You have to “examine the reason behind the oppressive behavior” if men are to make the changes necessary to live in a fair environment.

We just have to shut up and listen, ”he added.
