Priyanka Chopra:
DUBAI - Attending the Global Education & Skills Forum (GESF) 2018, Priyanka Chopra talked about the misconception about feminism and gender equality when a man questioned her about being partial towards men.

Priyanka said, "Physiologically men and women are different. When we talk about equality and opportunity we talk about cerebral opportunity. We are saying you give the ability to get the job, to be the CEO and nobody should question a women’s choices or her drive to be someone. So if she is 50, a CEO and a mother of three. do not question her."

Priyanka further put the nail in the coffin by saying, "So when a girl slaps a man who teases her, he deserves it."

Further, when she was asked about balancing the role of being a beauty queen, and a proud feminist, Priyankم stated that, " Who decides whether a beauty pageant is part of feminism or not? As a proud feminist, I am glad that it was my stepping stone. We should let a woman do what she wants without judging her. I believe in destiny. I believe that destiny and hard work go hand in hand. I was not born with a silver spoon. You cannot replace hard work. Indian media says that models and beauty queens cannot act. But I think it's an organic or an individual process but the audience is very intelligent You don't have to be the most beautiful or talented person in the room but people want to watch you. I think that's called X-factor."
