Some of our Bollywood beauties defines the old age proverb “Beauty With Brains” perfectly and raise their voice on issues like feminism whenever required. They either convey a strong social message or support matters which raise against crime against women. Being a star their opinion matters and they are strong enough to represent themselves as a strong and independent woman.
These were the 12 times when they raised their voice and nailed it. The society needs to learn from their words of wisdom.
1. Kangana Ranaut On Feminism:
Your birth as a girl child is not celebrated; if it’s not a tragedy for a family, it’s definitely a setback. When you start from a point like that, it is very hard to find pride in yourself.
I don’t believe men are made to rule the world. In the same way, I don’t believe women should be doormats.
I never gave a damn about what anyone said about me. I still don’t..
3. Priyanka Chopra:
I think women have been treated like second class people, no matter where in the world we go.
4. Nandita Das:
We keep saying things like “uska rang saaf hai” as if dark skin is a dirty thing. This mindset is propagated in our songs, stories and movies.
5. Parineeti Chopra:
Women need to stand up for themselves and give out the message that they won’t tolerate casual loose talk about a woman and her sexuality. Especially in a country like ours, where the issues like rape and domestic abuse affect every strata of society. I believe that this is the need of the hour.
6. Kalki Koechlin:
This term feminism has been bastardised to the point where the average girl doesn’t want to be associated with it.
7. Anushka Sharma:
At the end of the day, you want respect. That’s all you want. When you pay me less money, you’re telling me I’m not as valuable.
Girls are just expected to be good-looking. Look nice and just be interesting enough for a guy to be interested in you in a film.

Weight used to be an issue. I was always a fat child and everyone used to tell me, “Why don’t you loose some weight?’ Over the years, I’ve realized, that my body is of certain type and I have to learn to accept it.
These ladies surely point out some serious issues which lie within our society. A country where ladies like P V Sindhu and Sakshi Malik won medals for our country in the Olympics where no male sportsperson performed well, we have the time to rethink where we are taking our future generations.
