Women being vocal is still new to the world: Priyanka Chopra

  • Print


Priyanka Chopra believes that women have started to stand up against gender biases but the world is still not able to digest them being ‘vocal’ about their choices.
The 35-year-old Bollywood star, who is having a dream run in Hollywood, says the movements like #MeeToo and Times’s Up prove that women across the globe have been facing challenges and India is no different. “Gender equality and women empowerment are global issues. Every country has its cultural problems. But women’s health and women’s rights are global problems. I live in America and in India as well. And because women are going through problems across the globe we have #MeToo campaign and women coming out. Women being vocal is still new to the world,” Priyanka said in an interview. “As a society, we need to focus on what are we doing for our women and children.”
