Educate Your Daughters: Priyanka Chopra Talks About What It Means To Be Born A Girl In India

Published on 7 September, 2016 at 11:26 pm By

Over the past few years, Bollywood actresses seem to be making great strides as far as speaking up for socially relevant issues goes. There was a time only the likes of Pooja Bhatt were outspoken enough to call a spade a spade. Now there’s quite a few Bolly actresses who seem to care about what happens to their kind in the world at large.

In a recent video, Priyanka Chopra, opened up about how difficult it is to be born a girl in India. She went on to question, and rubbish, this notion of girls being considered “paraya dhan“.



It’s very very difficult to be a girl in India, since the time we are born we are not valued enough as compared to the boys, We are told that a girl is ‘paraya dhan’ (belong to others). If a family doesn’t have a son then when somebody dies they don’t get heaven.

 

Priyanka, who is an ambassador for Girl Rising, the campaign to improve girls’ education globally; and Girl Up, a United Nations foundation, laid emphasis on the importance of educating the daughters of the nation, so that they can break out of the position of second-class citizen that their lack of education forces them into.


If more people in positions of power, and influence, over the masses would take the time to talk about the things that matter, the world would be a much better place. Kudos, Priyanka!
