At the Zindagi Live Awards in New Delhi, Aishwarya Rai spoke about the security of women in India. The 39-year-old actress, also a mother of a one-year-old girl, says she is angry because a lot is being said but very little action is taken to rectify the situation.
Talking about the feeling of insecurity that a lot of women in India feel, Aish spoke her heart out. She said,
“I don’t feel fear, rather there is a lot of anger and I don’t hesitate to say this. Many of us are privileged to have a lot of assurance about our safety but most of the women in our country do not have that.”
The actress feels the offenders who have committed crimes against women should be punished severely.
“There should be definite laws for offenders. They should be punished immediately. That is when we will see the change in the society,” said Aishwarya Rai.
The actress is satisfied with the fact that people are making genuine efforts to come together and carrying out rallies and protest for a change in laws and attitudes towards crimes against women. Yet, she believes a lot more needs to be done so that women feel more secure in our country.
