Actress Sonakshi Sinha attended 4th season of Proud Father for Daughters initiative which supports Nanhi Kali: Girl Child Education, NGO for Education of Girls in India on Saturday in Mumbai. During media interaction, Sonakshi stated that today women are raising their voices.
When asked her whether today’s women are coming forward for their rights, replying to that, Sonakshi said, “Today people are talking about it. There are ways where help is also available. I feel today girls are becoming more stronger when they see other girls who stands up for their own rights and justice so that really encourages them, even when we step in or come forward as actress or sports people and others who have media attention that boosts confidence of girls in much bigger manner so I feel women are raising their voices now for sure”.

When girls are born in the family, then family members force her to sit at home out of their choice and they don’t even send them to school so I feel ‘Nanhi Kali’ is great cause which promotes and supports little girls who has desire to study but don’t have means to pursue their study. It’s a wonderful initiative. They are looking so happy by going into schools so I feel if we get even more girl come and be able to get educate themselves that will be wonderful. I am as celebrity is immensely happy to be small part of this initiative and I am looking forward to contribute towards this cause to best of my abilities”.
