New Delhi: Sonam Kapoor says her father,actor Anil Kapoor, is a staunch feminist and he never differentiated between his daughters and son.
The 31-year-old actress said she and her sister Rhea were not brought up any differently than their brother Harshvardhan.
“Cinema is a beautiful medium, can be used to inspire change. Ignorance is what is destroying the country. My father is a staunch feminist. I was not brought up any differently than my brother Harsh,” Sonam said during a session at the NDTV Youth For Change conclave.
The “Neerja” actress was part of a panel to discuss on the topic – “What can women expect from the world we live in”.
Lyricist Prasoon Joshi, who was also a part of the discussion, said, “It is really sad that we have to speak about women at conclaves like this. It means not everything is well in our society.”
Arunima Sinha, the first female amputee to climb Mount Everest was also a part of the panel discussion.
“Women who have achieved something in life, must give back. When I survived an accident, it made me realise I must have lived to create history,” Arunima said. PTI
