The actress said in her post on Instagram that the new generation is being inspired by the historic achievement. Passing the Nari Shakti Vandan Bill is a step in the right direction, but the next important step is its prompt and effective implementation. This is an India that truly supports and empowers its women. The bill to reserve one-third seats for women in the Lok Sabha and state assemblies got Parliament’s nod on Thursday with Rajya Sabha assent to it.
It now requires the approval of a majority of state legislatures. However, this reservation will be implemented only after the census and delimitation work is completed. Earlier, actresses Kangana Ranaut, Bhumi Pednekar, Tamannaah Bhatia, Kirti Kulhari had expressed their support for the bill.
