She had a grasp on Feminism – which has equality between the genders and freedom of choice as its basic nub when she said, “Empowerment means you have the right to choose. So it’s my choice if I want to be at home. And it’s someone else’s choice if they want to be a working mother. But both are equally valid and neither of them should be ashamed of it.” The problem goes when moments later, she went and shamed the women who leave their children behind and go out to work. Mira was quoted saying, “I love being at home, I love being a mother to my child, I wouldn’t want to spend one hour a day with my child and rush off to work, why did I have her? She is not a puppy; I want to be there for her as a mother.”

Well, if a woman works that doesn’t mean she is treating her baby as puppy. Every woman have he own reasons to work and Mira’s remarks on this has hurt the sentiments of a lot of working women. Mira further shamed probably all women who ask for their rights and are fobbed off as aggressive, demanding and even playing the ‘victim card’, she added that “The new wave of feminism is aggressive and destructive. There is a term called ‘Feminazi’ which is now becoming the female equivalent of a male chauvinist.”
