How many more children like baby Asifa will be sacrificed at the intersect of religion & politics? How many more children will have to suffer unimaginable crimes before we wake up? I’m disgusted. It’s time for swift action. We owe it to Asifa and to humanity. #justiceforAsifa.

At a recent event, PeeCee spoke about gender equality and women empowerment. The Mary Kom actor said, “Gender equality and women empowerment are global issues. Every country has its cultural problems. But women’s health and women’s rights are global problems. I live in America and in India as well. And because women are going through problems across the globe, we have Me Too campaign and women coming out. Women being vocal is still new to the world.”
Priyanka Chopra is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. She focuses on improving the health and well-being of women and children and said that she is passionate about the cause.
“I am very passionate and emphatic about the causes I support. Whatever I can do to bring people’s attention to this forum I will do it. This forum is not about supporting a cause. It is a way of life. It is how things should be,” said the actor.
The Quantico actor also said, “It’s not like the world is going to change in 10 years. Hopefully, I will see it in my lifetime. But if not, (it should change) for the next generation. That’s what I am hoping. I love the tenacity… of seeing women supporting each other, of women turning around and telling that ‘it’s wrong’.”
