This is What Konkona Sen Sharma Has to Say About Feminism

"The minute you believe in equality, you already are a feminist"

"I'm surprised feminism's been getting such a bad rep of late, because the minute you believe in equality, whether you want the label or not, you already are a feminist. Right now, patriarchy is part of our being in such an insidious way—in things as simple as design! I've read that cellphones are larger because they're designed for male hands (which are bigger than ours) and even seatbelts are as uncomfortable as they are because they weren't designed with breasts in mind. I think the day we start to really make place for women, only then will feminism actually become redundant."
