Richa Chadha gives out a strong message on National Girl Child Day
On National Girl Child Day, Richa Chadha took to social media this morning to spread a pivotal message on the girl child issue in India.
Richa is known for speaking her mind and especially when it comes to empowerment of women. And on this special day too, she has an interesting message to share giving her take on the #HeforShe campaign, which is administered by the United Nations to make men be the agents of change for equal rights of women.
In the video that Richa shared on Instagram, Richa says, "I got a thought on this National Girl Child Day that while we talk about government initiatives like Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao,
She continued, I think we need to discuss things like everyday sexism too. Things like discussing gender pay disparity, or the hesitant attitude to report a sexual crime. And even the fact that the number of child rapes are increasing every day. Not a single day we wake up where there isn't a disturbing news. Adding to that, 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. But here's hoping we can all do it together because it is the need of the hour. (sic)"
