On a visit to Delhi at an event Kangana Ranaut took part in a roundtable discussion on how women can strike a balance while wearing different hats as part of the Xin Philanthropy Conference organised by the Alibaba Foundation.
The half-hour session saw the participants share their ideas of feminism and draw from their personal experiences of working for women’s rights. Beginning the session, Kangana said, “It is so shameful that we still have to fight for things like the right to wear what we want or simply the right to go out at the time we want to, without being judged. When you have to fight for what is obvious, it means the society is in a bad shape.” Talking about feminism, the actress added that people who act against women and the idea of feminism are the ones who deserve to be trolled on social media. Kangana said, “Most people misunderstand feminism.
Feminism is an idea. But the world is not fair. You can’t expect that you will be readily given your rights and if something is right, it will come to you. That’s not how the world functions. And this is something that we need to agree on and fight for. And anybody who goes against it is someone who needs to be shamed. That is the kind of person you need to shame on social media, not the ones who are actively working for feminism.”
