Sharing the powerful quote on Women's Day, Shilpa Shetty wrote,""A woman with a voice is, by definition, a strong woman." - Melinda Gates." She added, "For generations, women have been subjected to, revolted against, & endured all kinds of injustice. They are often touted to be the ‘weaker sex’; apart from constantly being scrutinised for being ‘who’ they are. But, when they work their way up and take centrestage, they’re unstoppable. Together, let’s vow to #BreakTheBias to help our future generations grow in an equal and just world A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. One that is diverse, fair, & inclusive; where difference is valued & celebrated everywhere; be it at our workplaces or within our schools, colleges, and communities. Let’s evolve! Most importantly, always remember to celebrate yourself every day".
