Mallika Sherwat, global entity and Indian actress, has been extended an honour from the Oxford Union (Oxford University), UK that does the nation proud. Mallika has been invited to participate in a debate titled ‘This House Believes Gender Exists to Oppress’.
A spokesperson from the Oxford Union states, “We feel that as a figure who recently was very outspoken about the image of women and women’s rights in a country like India, Mallika would lend an interesting angle to the debate.”
An enthusiastic Mallika states, “Yes, I have accepted the invitation. The date is set on Feb 27th. A lot of preparation is required. It’s a great honour. I come from a small town, so it means a lot to be invited to speak at such a historic venue. I can use the platform to highlight issues like drop in the conviction rate in rape cases across the country.”
