Global icon Priyanka Chopra is undoubtedly Bollywood’s best bet today. The multitalented actor has already reached a milestone in her career with all the success she has received in the west. Priyanka is one such star who has not just focussed on her career graph but as well made efforts on various global issues such as women rights and education for refugee and girl child. PeeCee has even spoken strongly about women empowerment and gender disparity.  

“When a girl slaps a man who teases her, he deserves it” - Priyanka Chopra

Soon after wrapping up the third season of her American TV show Quantico, Chopra flew to Dubai to speak at the Global Education & Skills Forum (GESF) 2018. At the event, a man questioned the diva on being partial towards men and she being her witty best replied in her best feminist form. To be particular, he asked PC how fair it is when men eve-tease and get slapped by the woman it’s considered okay but a man slapping a woman is considered a crime.

Commenting on that, Priyanka said, “Physiologically men and women are different. When we talk about equality and opportunity we talk about cerebral opportunity. We are saying you give the ability to get the job, to be the CEO and nobody should question a woman’s choices or her drive to be someone. So if she is 50, a CEO and a mother of three. Do not question her.”

She closed the conversation by saying, “So when a girl slaps a man who teases her, he deserves it.” 

Bold enough, right?

Priyanka further spoke about the same as she added, “Objectification of women is there across the world and not just in Bollywood. It's there in music videos, pop songs, big movies etc. Why do those things make money? Who is watching it? Who is buying those tickets? Who is saying it is okay to go watch those movies. It is called demand and supply. Don't demand it and don't ask for it. There are a lot of girls who say that they are not okay with that and then they get replaced. There is a big fight that's happening right now, between the demand and the supply. I think things are changing. I mean decades ago we wouldn't see a female-centric film opening the box office but today a female starrer is getting numbers better than the boys. That is the change that we have seen in our own lifetime,”

Priyanka was further asked to talk about her being a beauty queen and a proud feminist as well. To that she replied, “Who decides whether a beauty pageant is part of feminism or not? As a proud feminist, I am glad that it was my stepping stone. We should let a woman do what she wants without judging her. I believe in destiny. I believe that destiny and hard work go hand in hand. I was not born with a silver spoon. You cannot replace hard work. Indian media says that models and beauty queens cannot act. But I think it's an organic or an individual process but the audience is very intelligent You don't have to be the most beautiful or talented person in the room but people want to watch you. I think that's called X-factor.”

Hearing that coming from our Quantico star, we must admit that we are extremely proud of her and she truly is an inspiration for many women out there.
