“There is so much the daughters of India are capable of achieving, and yet only a few are able to realize their dreams. What stops them is the world around them, clipping their wings, stifling their voices, robbing them of opportunities. We all have faced these challenges, we all have felt this bias and we have found a way to survive, to win. As women, we must stand together with the daughters of the country and invest in their future to make way for many more strong and independent women. #SheCanFly, let’s give her the sky!”
– Tabu (Actor)
