If we teach feminism to boys, we won’t have to ‘save’ our daughters: Pankaj Tripathi

Bollywood actor famously known as Kaleen Bhaiya Pankaj Tripathi has expressed that feminism is an idea that should be instilled in boys just as strongly as girls.

During an interview with Indian media, Tripathi expressed feminism must be included for all young boys by the education system. “I feel that parents put all their energies into grooming and teaching their daughters how to behave themselves but when it comes to boys, it’s not given the same importance,” he asserted.

“In today’s education, I think the inclusion of feminism is a must for all young boys, too,” he said by adding that if this is done then we won’t have to ‘save’ our daughters anymore.

According to Mirzapur actor, boys need to learn right from the beginning that no gender is superior or inferior. “There was a time when I survived solely on my wife’s salary and I see absolutely no harm in doing so. My wife and daughter have impacted my life in the best way possible.” said the actor.

The actor is known for his sensitive and subtle performances in movies such as ‘Nil Battey Sannata’, ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ and ‘Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl’.
