Women’s Day and Holi both on one long weekend meant a LOT of fun for Team MissMalini. We’ve counted down everything from post-holi hair and skin damage to some amazing women empowerment quotes by our favourite Bollywood starlets. Turns out, we weren’t the only ones going ham on Instagram. Here are 5 Bollywood divas and their personal Instagram messages inspired by Women’s Day!
Here’s what the full text read:
Every 20 mins or so, there is a rape happening in our country. And today we are “celebrating” women’s day. No single day can express the injustice that women have to go through everyday. To be objectified, abused and treated worse than garbage.
Stand up against this abuse, not just today but every day. Women are NOT objects. They NEED to be respected. Women empowerment is the best change to make the world a better place. Love and respect to all you lovely ladies out there! ALWAYS keep your head up and NEVER stop being FEARLESS!!! #ProudToBeAnIndianWoman
Because who run the world? Girls!
We love it when a girl knows how to have fun AND be powerful!
Neha Dhupia tells it like it is. Nothing’s more beautiful!
And finally, our favourite Bollywood feminist’s post on self-defense classes. You’ve got to love her supportive husband, Akshay Kumar!
How did you celebrate Women’s Day?
