Aamir Khan Discusses Women's Equality in India at Tina Brown's 6th Annual Women in the World Summit in New York City

Celebrated Bollywood star Aamir Khan joined Iraqi-American humanitarian Zainab Salbi on the opening night of Tina Brown‘s 6th annual Women in the World Summit in New York City yesterday to discuss women’s issues in India, a topic he has helped make a national conversation through three seasons of his hit TV show Satyamev Jayate, or Truth Alone Triumphs. 

Excerpts from Women in the World:

Masculinity was an equally challenging topic. “Unless we redefine what it is to be a man, things aren’t going to change. Is a real man a protector or someone who goes and beats people up?” he asked, adding that rigid gender roles should be abandoned and male sensitivity encouraged. “You cannot raise a boy telling him not to cry. You are in effect distancing him from emotion and then you are surprised when he grows up and beats his wife.”

“The balance of power in India needs to change. Unless conviction becomes swift, certain things are not going to change and as a society we have to shun the rapist and hold the survivor close.”

Marissa Bronfman Instagram Brown Paper Bag Mumbai Photo Trail BPB Weekend

At Moxie we’re known for creating and popularizing two hashtags that describe our work and passion with precision: #futureisdigital and my personal favorite, #futureisfemale. Looking back on an incredible year and preparing for another with both gratitude and unbridled enthusiasm, we are so proud of the hard-earned milestones that have punctuated 2014, many of which were born from a very powerful [digital + women's empowerment] equation that continues to define who and what this agency is and does.

In January of this year, we featured inspiring stories about superhero(ine) women Sara BlakelyFatima Bhutto and Angela Ahrendts on our blog Moxie Insider and Brown Paper Bag launched their Photo Trail series with my Instagram images, which hold clues to the #futureisgreen food project we’re preparing to launch in 2015. Nokia empowered us to take our national Women in Media panel series and Moxie Mentorship program to Social Media Week Bangalore in February, during which time our panelists sparked an international furor amongst feminists on social media that resulted in articles in both Huffington Post and Firstpost.
