Katrina Kaif speaks about marital rape and other crimes against women

Katrina Kaif recently attended ‘WeUnite’ conference where she spoke about the issues like marital rape and other crimes against women.

Katrina said, “I know of educated women, who remain silent in the face of violence, because they are afraid to confront societal norms and have fingers pointed in their direction. Especially, when the majority of our society fails to recognise martial rape as a crime. I would urge more women to speak up. It is not okay to feel inferior or weak, because we are not the weaker sex by any stretch of imagination.”

“The world has largely been led by patriarchal societies and women have, through the years, largely remained quiet in the face of atrocities rather than speak out against them,” the ‘Bang Bang’ actress added.

The actress further stated that it is sad to know that there’s gender inequality in a country which was once headed by a woman. “India had a woman as the head of state, way before the United kingdom, a feat United states of America has not managed to achieve as of yet. Which is why it is surprising to hear about gender inequality in India. And sadly we do,” Kat said.

“On a daily basis there are shocking stories about the violent crimes made against women. Yet, I can only imagine how many other crimes against women in India go unreported,” the ‘Fitoor’ actress added.

When it comes to films, the actress will next be seen in ‘Jagga Jasoos’ and ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’.
