Feminism is just saying give me opportunities without judging me: Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra, who is currently shooting for her upcoming Hollywood projects, has talked about the idea and need of feminism.
“I see so many girlfriends of mine who are like, ‘No I’m not that much of a feminist.’ I don’t even understand that. The need for feminism was created because there were no rights for women. That’s why there is not a man-ism, because they always had it,” she told Variety magazine.
Further defining feminism, Priyanka said, “Feminism is not about berating or hating men or disliking or trying to make sure we’re better than men,” she says. “Feminism is just saying give me opportunities without judging me for the decisions that I make, the same freedom that men have enjoyed for so many centuries.”
She also said that feminism is not about hating men: “It needs the men in their lives to stand up for their mothers, their sisters, their girlfriends, their wives, their daughters and say that I’m going to change the game for my future generation.”
Priyanka will soon be seen in A Kid Like Jake along with Claire Danes and Jim Parsons. She is also working with Liam Hemsworth and Rebel Wilson for Isn’t It Romantic?
Priyanka has also produced a Sikkimese film, Pahuna, which was recently screened at the Toronto International Film Festival.
