Sangita Mehra of Spread A Smile Shares Her Idea of Feminism

"I think the biggest feminist fight begins at the level of education"

"The idea that success isn't dependant on gender—that's feminism. To be able to express yourself freely, outside the confines of societal norms, those things come to mind first and foremost. The idea that feminists dress or look a certain way doesn't apply, in my opinion. On the contrary, my style is feminine, and I choose to celebrate being a woman fully through what I wear. I think the biggest feminist fight begins at the level of education—to raise children and educate them as equals, so they grow up with that as the foundation for how they live."
