“When you talk about women empowerment, I can share my own experience. My parents have always told me you have to be independent. We must tell women to speak up. You don’t have to yell, scream, fight or be physical, but stand up for yourself,” said Sunny Leone.

“It’s not about waking up and saying, ‘Today I am going to do it’. It is about small decisions. You should be able to say to your boyfriend or husband that I am not washing the dishes tonight, you can do it... Little things add upto you becoming a stronger person like both my parents shared duties,” the 34-year-old added.
