Jewellery Designer Eina Ahluwalia Shares Her Take On Feminism

"It simply means women having the same life experience as men do"

"I remember the first time I was told I was a feminist (I was still very young), I was taken aback, surprised, and almost too quick to defend myself by saying 'Of course, I'm not!'. I just had a very strong sense of justice and was not okay with what wasn't right. And I didn't realise that this is exactly what feminism is. I thought feminists were women who held demonstrations and I knew they were considered painful, and not really liked (yes, even I!). But now, being one simply means women having the same life experience as men do—equal pay at work, equal power at home, equal freedom on the streets, and equal acceptance of self-expression. Feminism stands for a very elementary, equal human right to everything. And that's how it should be."
