No one would deny that Pankaj Tripathi is a true feminist on and off the camera. Be it about his roles in films or in real life, Pankaj Tripathi never fails to share a strong message about feminism. Recently in his interview, Pankaj Tripathi mentioned some extraordinary lessons for parents, that would definitely help build a better society!
While sharing an important lesson on feminism, Pankaj Tripathi mentioned:
“I feel that parents put all their energies into grooming and teaching their daughters how to behave themselves but when it comes to boys, it’s not given the same importance as it needs.”
He further adds:
“In today’s education, I think the inclusion of feminism is a must for all young boys. If this is done, we won’t have to “save” our daughters anymore.”
We live in a country where women are constant victims of eye-teasing, molestation, physical and mental abuse. Pankaj feels that boys should be made to learn that no gender is superior or inferior. While sharing his two cents on raising boys, he mentioned:
“Feminism, which talks of equal rights and opportunities for men and women, is a study that should be instilled in boys just as strongly as girls who are often taught to behave themselves in society.”
“Boys need to learn right from the beginning that no gender is ever superior or inferior. Respecting the other genders as well as empowering each other should be taught early on, not just to girls but to young boys as well.”
“To see the existence of such a large gender disparity in our country needs immediate attention and change,”.
It’s not the first time, Pankaj Tripathi spoke about feminism and the importance of treating women as equal partners. While talking about how he sought help from his wife during his early years, he mentioned to HT:
“There was a time when I survived solely on my wife’s salary and I see absolutely no harm in doing so. My wife and daughter have impacted my life in the best way possible,”
Pankaj has touched our hearts so many times through his powerful take on feminism. We hope more men would seek inspiration from Pankaj and become our companions in the fight against the patriarchal and unequal society.
