Taapsee Pannu is enjoying as her latest movie – ‘Judwaa 2’, trailer is receiving rave reviews. The actress has impressed us with her stunts and acting abilities in all her movies till date.

Besides appearing in movies, Taapsee is also known for doing her bit for society. Having worked in films like ‘PINK’ and ‘Naam Shabana’, Taapsee became the face of woman empowerment for having portrayed strong roles on screen.

Taapsee has always been vocal about the need for gender equality and women safety. For this, she is now working together with Techfest, IIT Bombay, towards promoting sanitary education through the distribution of sanitary napkins in villages & by organizing self-defense workshops for women.

Taapsee was seen addressing and delivering a keynote on the same at the Techfest. This will create more awareness and generate equality for women as Taapsee is considered a role model by many women.

Techfest is a great platform for Taapsee Pannu to take this message forward and speaking about this she said,

”I have never understood why mensuration has always been such a hushed topic and always has code words to address it or talk about it. Probably that’s one of the reasons why the sanitary health of women could not really improve because discussing about it freely was a taboo. It’s a natural and extremely critical aspect of womanhood which surely needs to be discussed and addressed so people understand it better. Delighted to see the students of IIT Bombay are working in this direction and I’ am extremely happy to extend my support for the same.”

Techfest presents social initiatives every year to lead the society towards eradicating some social problems. This year Taapsee has collaborated with the team as the face for their women empowerment initiative.
