Actress Katrina Kaif recently spoke of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi as a true icon of inspiration for her. The actress also believes that ace tennis player Serena Williams is a source of great inspiration.
"I find Indira Gandhi, Serena Williams inspirational, because they left a mark in the fields that were primarily dominated by men.''
In her acting career, the actress has tasted both success and failure. She is often regarded as one of the most hardworking actresses.
"As women we can go through moments of insecurities, uncertainties, of not knowing what our place is or what we want to do in our lives. However we are, and whatever we are, that is enough. We should believe in ourselves and never forget to try and help others. Helping others is usually the last thing on everyone's mind, but one should help those who are in need," she said.
Katrina also emphasised on the importance of imparting education to create gender equality. "Education will change gender bias. It is the way forward. It will change people's mindsets. I think the biggest change we can bring is through education. Knowledge is where we get our power from," she said.
Katrina was speaking at the L'Oreal Paris 'Women of Worth' award function. Two other L'Oreal ambassadors Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan were also present at the event to give away the awards.
