On the occasion of National Girl Child's Day, Richa Chadha sent out a powerful message supporting the cause. The actress, who has always been an outspoken personality, sent out an interesting message on the #HeForShe campaign conducted by the United Nations.
In the video, Chadha says, "I got a thought on this National Day of the Girl Child that while we talk about government initiatives like Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao, I think we need to discuss things like everyday sexism too. Things like discussing gender pay disparity, or the hesitant attitude to report sexual crime. And even the fact that the number of child rapes are increasing everyday. What does that mean? Are women only objects which are used and thrown away. Not a day we wake up where there isn't a disturbing news. How will we as a country progress where half the population is treated as a liability?"
The actress added, "I feel this HeForShe movement which is ongoing... I feel for the survival of the human race depends both on men and women. I feel it should be HeForUs instead. We need to survive, we need to feel equal. I am hoping the attitude should change which is already happening but we still have a long way to do. But here's hoping we can all do it together because it is the need of the hour".
