Web Desk -- Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma says gender of child doesn't make you privileged but it is the responsibility you owe to society to raise a boy so well that women feel safe and protected.
Actor-producer Anushka Sharma has never been one to shy away from speaking about the existing controversial topics. Recently, taking to her Instagram the mommy-to-be penned down a powerful note on gender inequality in the wake of the recent horrific rape incidents in the cities of Hathras and Balampur.
She wrote, 'In our society having a male is seen as a privilege.....Of course, it's no more privilege than having a girl child but the fact is that this so-called privilege has been viewed incorrectly and with an extremely myopic view.
According to the PK star the only 'privilege' is that one has the opportunity to raise a boy in a way that he respects a girl. That's your DUTY as a parent to society. So, don't think of it as a PRIVILEGE'.
The Bollywood diva condemned the rape cases in Hathras and Balapur. "Barely any time has passed and we're hearing of another rape incident." She tweeted, " In which world do such monsters think they can do this to a young life? This is beyond comprehension; so distressing. Is there any fear in the minds of such monsters? How do we as society put fear in them and protect our women? #NoMercyForRapists."
