Back in 2017, Mira had made very controversial statements about her idea of feminism and her choice of being a housewife. However, her take on feminism didn’t go down well with many including one of her former college mates who has slammed the lady for her remarks. She slammed her and revealed shocking details about the Bollywood actor’s wife.
First, let’s see what Mira had said during an interview in 2017,
“I love being at home, I love being a mother to my child, I wouldn’t want to spend one hour a day with my child and rush off to work, why did I have her? She is not a puppy…I want to be there for her as a mother. Feminism isn’t woman versus a man. It’s about equality. A new wave of feminism has come that is aggressive…I feel it’s destructive. There’s a new term called ‘feminazi’, which is the female equivalent of a chauvinist. I think there should be harmony between the two sexes and equilibrium.”
To this, her former college mate slammed her and talked about her college time. She wrote an open letter on Facebook and stated:
Having watched your interview, I feel extremely enraged today. I’ve spent three years in the same college and batch as you. I can say today with confidence that your idea of feminism is extremely flawed. Seeing you walk around with your posse in college, belittling women who were not skinny enough or did not subscribe to your fashion ‘standards’ makes me wonder what you ever did to have a moral high ground over anyone at any point. Your narrow world view is astounding to say the least. And not to forget, how your statement about working mothers takes us years back in reaching actual empowerment of which you seem to know nothing.
With lots of aggression,
An informed feminist”
