Criticising the celebration of International Women's Day (March 8, Sunday) in a country where incidents of crime against women are everywhere, Bollywood actor Shraddha Kapoor has called upon Indian women to stand up against any kind of abuse towards them and also be fearless.



The 26-year-old criticised the celebration of International Women's Day through a series of tweets, saying a single occasion is not enough to remember the injustice women go through every day.



"Every 20 mins or so, there is a rape happening in our country. And today we are 'celebrating' womens day. No single day can express the injustice that women have to go through everyday. To be objectified, abused and treated worse than garbage. Stand up against this abuse, not just today but every day," she wrote.





Shraddha asked women to be fearless. "Love and respect to all you lovely ladies out there! ALWAYS keep your head up and NEVER stop being FEARLESS!!!


#ProudToBeAnIndianWoman," she added.



The Aashiqui 2 star, who is the daughter of Bollywood veteran Shakti Kapoor, said "women empowerment is the best change to make the world a better place".
