Kiran Rao: It’s A Shame That We Have To Fight For Equal Pay

Kiran Rao is one of the producers of Secret Superstar and today at its trailer launch, she was asked what message she wants to give women.

She said:

“Historically, women have been sidelined. Since many years, they are considered secondary. In many countries, women were allowed to vote much later. All over the world, women have to struggle to get their rights, to get recognition. Equal pay for equal work. It’s a shame that we have to fight for equal pay. I just want to tell women and girls out there that this film (Secret Superstar) gives the message to not be scared to dream, don’t be scared to desire & want things. It’s your right to follow your heart and dreams. I hope you (women) find success in life. I wish all of you luck and success.”

Isn’t that just awesome?
