Twinkle Khanna is a strong lady who is known for the bold and open expression of her opinion in public! She is very opinionated and believes in women-men equality and empowering women! An author now by profession, the lady has successfully published a few books now, that focus upon women! Twinkle has recently made a strong statement about women empowerment saying that the women must be financially independent to empower themselves!
Talking about the topic on how to make women empower themselves Twinkle Khanna said, “We often tell women to speak up for themselves and to be fearless, but the fact is if you are not financially independent, then you have to toe the line and have to raise hand for the cheque.”
“Economic indepence is the primary thing for all women out there. They should not rely on someone else for their needs, all should become self-reliant,” Twinkle said during the launch of her third book titled ‘Pyjamas are Forgiving’ on Wednesday. Organised by YFLO Delhi, the event was moderated by renowned journalist Barkha Dutt. Asked the reason for holding a political ideology different from her husband and actor Akshay Kumar’s opinions, Twinkle responded by saying: “We all have a right to vote which implies we all have a right to have different opinions”, said Twinkle Khanna.
Putting across her opinion of disagreement with the societal norms Twinkle Khanna said, “Be it colour, caste, nationality or opinion, we all are shunning people who are different from us. And through this, we end up learning nothing. We all are living in an echo-chamber. “It is good to have different opinions as it will help people to learn more about things in a different manner.”
Talking about the impacts of aging on women, she said, “Ageing is a strange thing. When women cross 40, they start panicking about their looks and start getting cosmetic treatments. Rather bothering about looks, women should invest in their skills and try to develop a mind. If you have skills, automatically all heads will turn for you no matter what the looks are.”
Well said Lady! Stay tuned for more updates!
