When she took to the stage, she greeted the audience with a namaste with her Mehendi-clad hands and proceeded with to talk about gender discrimination amongst other things. The Divergent actress also shared her gut-wrenching experiences during an interaction,  “I was molested for the first time at the age of seven, experienced rapes at the age of 14 and in 1998. It’s a miracle that I wasn’t trafficked.” She ended her speech by saying, “Ab samjhauta nahi”.

Previously, during an interview, Judd has spoken about being harassed by a top Hollywood studio executive.

Hats off to Ashley for talking about these sensitive issues to support the cause.
