Richa Chadha Women face discrimination even in small decisions


(News Agencies)Richa Chadha: Women face discrimination even in small decisions. Richa Chada feels discriminated against as a woman in Indian society. Giving the answer when asked if she face any gender discrimination in film industry, Richa said, “No, I do not blame Bollywood. But to be honest, as a woman, you have to take all your discriminations based on what men think, right? You feel discriminated when realising that even small decisions of daily life (are) controlled by men… for example, as a girl you cannot wear short clothes while travelling by public transport.”She added, “So, when you realise that you have to take these small decisions keeping in mind what men think, you know you are in a position of disadvantage. Since Bollywood is in India, where the society limits women’s choices like this, why should we blame only the industry?”Actor who is playing a pivotal role in the upcoming web-series Inside Edge, Richa is playing the role of an actor who owns a cricket team and is trying hard to protect it from corruption and match-fixing. “My character is very interesting and complex because she goes through a lot, but projects herself to the world as a strong woman whereas inside she is vulnerable at times… She does not cry in public as that is a sign of weakness for women,” Richa said.
