Sonam Kapoor: I Am Lucky to be Surrounded by Strong Women

Sonam Kapoor is all set to deliver a powerful talk on women empowerment at an Indian restaurant in London, as part of an ongoing women's club initiative on August 5. The actress has always been a supporter of women and an advocate of women’s rights. After her long vacation in Japan with husband Anand Ahuja, the actress is back to work and has her hands full with a couple of projects. Women empowerment appears to be one of her key goals this year and in a recent interview she has opened up on being a strong woman, on the strong women around her and how she is lucky to be surrounded by strong women.
"Strong women lift each other up. I'm lucky to be surrounded by many of them and hope to encourage that sisterhood. Women can make it big in this man's world only if we motivate and empower each other,” she said in the interview to an Indian portal. Sonam has always been one to voice her opinion on feminism and in an earlier interview to Huffingtonpost she said, "I am a complete feminist.. .being a feminist is to understand that it’s not about boys and girls, it’s about being who you are, not being afraid, and standing up for what you believe is right."
She went on to speak about how her father Anil Kapoor had always encouraged her to achieve anything she wanted. "My father (Anil Kapoor) is the best person I know because he encourages me and my sister. He treats me as a strong capable individual and for that he is a feminist. He believes that these girls are more than capable of doing a lot of things which a lot of people are not. I have never been afraid of being who I am, so for me, my father is a feminist in that way,” she said.
Sonam was last seen in Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, which was well-received by the critics. It was also the first time that she shared screen space with her father.
