This was an initiative taken by an NGO called The Circle which has been formed by the women and for the women. This initiative as to empower women from different walk of life.

The video showed some statistics of reality on lack of women’s representation and rights in our society.

Richa was excited to be a part of this initiative and stated, “Last year, a survey claimed that India is the world’s most unsafe place for women and I was really embarrassed.

“I was even more disturbed to read in another survey that 42 per cent of women think that being beaten is okay. There needs to be a drastic shift in mindset if we are to progress in a genuine way as a country.”

Richa further said she finds it ’empty progress’ that one has “giant skyscrapers but I cannot go home from my office in the same skyscraper using public transport at 9 p.m. in the night without the fear of assault. And this is true for most parts of India”. “I am grateful that India finds representation in the video,” added the actress, who has been vocal about women’s rights
