I just wanted to say…
Thank you. You following me means alot.
“Actresses who are wonderful at their work, but look unconventional, have struggled to make it. Men who are not conventionally good looking, had to try hard as well, but they still managed to be the hero in films. Whenever I have to play a middle-class or upper middle class woman, I am told: ‘I know you don’t like being white or fair but can you make your skin a little lighter? The rural, lower class women are dark but now that you playing an educated professional….’ Do all educated people have to be fair complexioned? If you want me for a role and want me to change my skin tone, then sorry, wrong casting! The entertainment industry has pushed women to undergo cosmetic procedures to enhance skin tones. I know of darker women who eventually became 20 shades lighter. I understand the pressure. I don’t blame them. The obsession with fairskinned women is just symptomatic of a deeper and more sinister problem. It is disrespect for women which comes out in various ways… this is just one of them…and it cuts across class" - Nandita Das
Reblogged from itsbollywood
I will be posting again soon :D
I apologize for not posting these past few months. Please know that this movement is still going on strong. I have been making radical positive changes in my life recently, and sadly it has pulled me away from my laptop. However, I have been making a list of women (and now men!) to post on this blog. I don’t know when I’ll be back exactly but trust that I will. Thank you for following me, and to all my new followers I see you! I’m here every day I just cannot post anything. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or suggestions please inbox me. Til then stay unfair and stay beautiful.
