Dame Joan Collins says modern men are "suffering from the rise of anti-maleness" in the wake of the #MeToo movement. The 88-year-old acting legend is a supporter of the campaign - originally created by activist Tarana Burke in 2006 to empower women from black communities who had endured sexual assault to speak out - which saw women all over the world share their painful experiences of sexual abuse and misconduct by men online in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal which broke in 2017 revealing the now imprisoned movie producer to be guilty of multiple sexual assaults on numerous women in Hollywood.

However, Collins believes that the current climate is making decent men become wary around women because they fear being accused of perpetuating toxic masculinity.

In an interview with The New York Times newspaper, she said: "Sadly, I think that now young men are suffering from being labelled toxically masculine because of this rise of anti-maleness. ” Collins is aware that her opinion could lead to her being branded an anti-feminist but she insists nothing could be further from the truth.
