Swara Bhaskar is one actress who has not only stood out for her incredibly powerful performances but has been vocal about social issues that hinder the growth of women in the society. The talented actress in a tête-à-tête with Vidya Balan talked about ‘What Women Want’ on BIG FM’s show ‘Dhun Badalke Toh Dekho with Vidya Balan’.
When the conversation veered towards the power dynamics between men and women, Swara shared, “There is no relationship without power equation be it amongst a father – daughter or even siblings. There is always a power dynamic, which should be equal. Our constant endeavor should be to equalize the power equation especially when we have the opportunity and the equal space to do so.”
Commenting on the #MeToo movement and sharing her thoughts about consent, the star added, “What is wrong is wrong irrespective of the fact who commits it. Maybe practicing this belief might get difficult and one has to pay a price but I believe it’s worth it. As a woman, one needs to take a stand on owning their body and deciding who is allowed to touch it. Through the movement, we encouraged women to be brave, break their silence and walk with freedom fearlessly without any protector”
Concluding the show based on ‘What Women Want,’ Vidya said, “It is not a power struggle to understand women and be in a constant competition on who wins the reign. When men feel secure about their stance is when they can create a support system for women around them. What women really want from the men in their lives is to be considered an equal which will eventually help in changing society’s age old notions. It is very important to keep the gender aside and understand each other as an individual for a smoother ride to progress. This is the only example we can set for the coming generations.”
