On this Women's day lets look at such fierce women of Bollywood who managed to time and again stand up and let their voice be heard.




Taapsee is also is known for doing her bit for the social cause. Having worked in films like PINK and Naam Shabana, Taapsee became the face of woman empowerment having portrayed strong roles on screen as well as in the ad world. Taapsee never hesitates to fight against the wrong be it telling other to stand for themselves on social media or stand for themselves in real life through self-defense training. 




Kalki has time and again used her acting prowess and influence to talk about gender inequality and gender violence.  She also used the public platform India Today Conclave 2017, to perform a solo act highlighting women abuse.

Richa Chadha took a bold stand over the #MeToo campaign. She wrote she an open letter where she quoted "Don't Just Discuss Sexual Harassment When It's Trending" - an apt highlight to show how social media is a place where things are discussed only in numbers when it's trending.

Her blog soon was shared extensively by her colleagues from the industry supporting her voice!
