“Why all feminists have to show cleavage in order to compete with men,” asked a Twitter user. This tweet caught singer Sona Mohapatra’s attention.
The man claimed, that she was “trying to woo” the Bollywood gang despite being one of their victims.
“Why all feminists have to show cleavage in order to compete with men… and after seeing ur few interviews i think ur a victim of bolly gang but again ur trying to woo them to be i their gang. wat a dichotomy,” the Twitter user wrote.
Of course, the 44-year-old singer had a comeback for this.
“I’d suggest you treat the multiple ‘cleavages’ in your brain before talking with anyone, let alone with a ‘feminist’ trying to ‘woo’ the ‘bolly gang’.. (Cleavage, noun : a sharp division; a split.),” the singer’s tweet read.
In 2017, Sona explained her take on feminism in a lengthy Facebook post. “For me, simply put, feminism means women are equal to men. Neither is inferior or superior. The ideal society in the future would be one in which we all operated & thought as ‘humans’ first & gender did not play a role in the treatment meted out to anyone’s opportunities in the world. While that is a utopian dream in the current day, the reason we need to have such discussions, debates & even fights is to work towards such a future. Attitudinal change in a society won’t happen without the same. This is the ‘good fight’, & worth fighting make no mistake,” she wrote
