Shehnaaz Gill lauds Women’s Reservation Bill: ‘If girls and boys are treated as equals, a lot of things…’

Actor Shehnaaz Gill expressed on Wednesday happiness over the Parliament taking up the Women’s Reservation Bill for passage. The actor, who visited the new Parliament building in New Delhi on Wednesday said that it is a great step.

“If we are given rights and equal treatment, parents too will support girls. I come from a small village, girls are married off so that they get settled. But after this, if girls and boys are treated as equals, a lot of things in the country will change,” Shehnaaz told ANI.

She was accompanied by her Thank You For Coming co-stars Bhumi Pednekar, Dolly Singh and Shibani Bedi.

Dolly also lauded the government for introducing a new Women’s Reservation Bill.

“This is a good step (Women’s Reservation Bill). Reservation is needed. It is important for women leaders and women to go ahead. For that, I feel elated. I also had the opportunity to visit the Parliament and witness a session. It was once in a lifetime opportunity…The times are changing. Better late than never,” she said.Bhumi said the bill will help increase the role of women in policymaking.

“As a modern Indian woman, representation is very important for us. When women are in positions of power, there will be a female gaze in debates, policies, and law-making — this is very important. This is an era of women. It is a matter of pride for us that we came here with our cast (film Thank You For Coming),” Bhumi expressed.

Content creator Shibani Bedi, who will also be seen in a pivotal role in Thank You For Coming’, called it a “beautiful moment”.
