What are the most important challenges that women face today?

What needs to be changed in the next 5 years?
MB: Even if we take one step forward each day, there will be progress.
What is your greatest strength?
MB: I would say…patience.
Women Empowerment: how pertinent the idea is?
MB: Women empowerment is more relevant today than ever, especially in the light of the current socio-political scenario in our country and the world.
On the recent #metoo movement, your opinion?
MB: This was a much-needed movement. I am happy to see so many women and also men coming forward despite all odds to make themselves heard.
Your take on the recent film, “Thappad”, that is meant to be a slap on chauvinism.
MB: I watched ‘Thappad’ just today and loved it! It is a powerful film and I would recommend it to everyone. It’s a film you should watch with your family.
Simply and subtly, the movie conveys an important message. It highlights the thin line between adjustment and compromise. Self-worth and self-respect are important to everyone, regardless of their gender!
What advice would you give to young women of today?
MB: Be yourself and focus. If you can dream it, you can achieve it.
