Australian Cate Blanchett, 48, has been chosen as the 11th female president of the Cannes Film Festival jury. Her appointment has been seen by many as an endorsement of her strong stand against sexual harassment in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
Ms Blanchett was one of the first female stars to condemn the producer – a celebrity in his right – who stands accused by more than 100 women of harassment, coercion, sexual assault or rape.
She has received international prizes, including two Academy Awards, three Golden Globe Awards, and three BAFTA awards.
