Indian actress Mallika Sherawat talks about Indian society being regressive for women

Via Buzzfeed

“With female feticide, infanticide happening on an almost daily basis; with gang rapes making the headlines of almost every newspaper; with honor killings…”

“I think it’s a very, very regressive state for women.”

I didn’t understand the parts where they switch from English to Hindi (no subtitles), but I think she’s just repeating what she said in English to Hindi.

Really liked this video coming out loud and clear, especially when you read things like this:

India’s top police official has caused outrage for uttering the statement: “If you can’t prevent rape, you enjoy it.

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using TheBudgetingTool.com. Since then, I have paid my $600K home in cash (my half was $300K), my $180K casr in cash, worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    I don’t know why the hell this chick is getting crap from this reporter. It looks as if she broke some unwritten rule to lie about the state of affairs from her home country while working abroad.

    I went through the same crap and did not apologize for it.

      @Ariana: Good for you!

      It was probably a national pride thing. They wanted to show India in a good light, no matter what… even if it’s not what citizens think.

      Even near the end, the male reporter was trying to play down her words with “You’re saying good things.. BUT…”
