At a recent IMC Ladies’ Wing opening of Women Entrepreneur exhibition, actress Sonam Kapoor spoke about how our Indian society is patriarchal and how women are constantly judged.
Here’s what she said:
Ours is a patriarchal society. For actresses, sportswomen and even for women in media, we have a lot of odd stacked against us. We are judged from the way we look to the way we speak to whether we are pregnant or not. We go through issues. We are seen as we are not capable or strong. Women are looked upon as they can’t do a lot of things and judged on it. It is very unfair.
But the actress feels that now things are changing for the better.
I am hoping things will be better. I am an optimistic person. If we help women, our society will get better. They are the foundation for a better India. Olympics was a great example. They would have done better had they got more support. I would request the government to invest more money into sports and female education. I have been blessed with a lot and I try to give back to my city in whatever way possible.
