Actress Anushka Sharma has expressed her thoughts regarding gender inequality and injustice.
‘Sultan’ actress wrote on Instagram that having a male child is views as a privilege.
She penned down a thought-provoking note, “In our society, having a male child is viewed as a privilege”.
“Of course, it’s no more privilege than having a girl child but the fact is that this so-called privilege has been viewed incorrectly and with an extremely myopic view. The only ‘privilege’ is that one has the opportunity to raise a boy in a way that he respects a girl. That’s your DUTY as a parent to society. So, don’t think of it as a PRIVILEGE.”
Anushka Sharma added, “The gender of the child doesn’t make you privileged but it is actually the responsibility you owe to society to raise a boy so well that women feel safe and protected.”
The actress has earlier expressed grief over the rape case in Uttar Pradesh’s Balrampur, which was reported soon after the Hathras gang-rape incident. She posted on Instagram, “Barely any time has passed and we are hearing of another brutal rape!?! In which world do such monsters think they can do this to a young life.”
