Tabu: Still lot to be done for women’s security and safety
Actress Tabu says things are certainly changing for Indian women but there is a lot still which can be done for their security and safety.
“It’s a multi-layered topic and discussion. We keep discussing and many issues will come out.. there is no one generic statement, we can make on this. I think there is some awareness and effort towards making the change.
“There is a lot which can be done for women’s security and safety.. it’s a huge issue but, I am glad we are thinking about change,” Tabu told IANS on the sidelines of an event on the occasion of International Women’s Day to a query how things has changed for women.
She was attending an event organised by detergent Ariel India on the topic ‘Why is laundry only a mother’s job? and calling on “Dads to #ShareTheLoad!”
“I am glad to support and spread Ariel’s new message which encourages Dads to #ShareTheLoad. Ariel’s own study shows that a significant number of men believe laundry and housework are a woman’s job. As someone with many examples in my own family, where men and dads #ShareTheLoad, I think it important to amplify and spread awareness of this conversation. So this women’s day “Gentlemen, we love the flowers but also do the laundry please,” she said.
A small video was also played at the event, which Tabu said, touched her deeply and made her be part of this event.
“I loved the film and I loved how it played out emotionally and that’s what really made me be part of this event at an emotional level it worked well for me. It really affected me on an emotional level,” she said.
