Shraddha Srinath who gained popularity with Nani starrer acclaimed sports drama ‘Jersey’ revealed that she is a feminist. She turned to feminism in her teens itself.
It is a known fact that there is a lot of stigmas attached to menstruation in Indian society. Recalling why she became a feminist, Shradha Srinath said it was the comments made by a lady when she got her first period.
“I was 14. At a family pooje, I got my period. I was not accompanied by my mom, so I nudged my aunt sitting next to me and worriedly informed her of it (because I was not carrying a sanitary pad). Another good natured lady sitting close, saw me worried and overheard me and said to me, smiling reassuringly, “Parvagilla chinna, devaru kshamistaare/ don’t worry child, God will forgive you” (for being part of the Pooja while menstruating). That’s the day I became a feminist and a non believer. I was 14,” she posted on her Instagram.
