This International Women’s Day, we ask Bollywood actresses to tell us what the term ‘new woman’ means to them.

She is independent, responsible, worldly, fun and a great homemaker. The new woman balances her needs, her family’s needs and her work beautifully.
—Bipasha Basu

A woman today is bestowed with intrinsic strength and a rare courage to fearlessly confront life with persistent tenacity. This is also reflected in the kind of women-centric scripts coming up in Bollywood currently.
—Amrita Rao

The new woman is brave, confident and knows what she wants. Women say believe in yourself. But before that, you must believe in God. Pehle God se dosti karo, phir insaan se dosti karo.
—Rakhi Sawant
