Amitabh Bachchan Is Standing Up For The Daughters Of India With This Powerful Twitter Post

When influential people take a stand for a good cause, people get inspired to follow in their footsteps.

And that’s why this simple gesture by Amitabh Bachchan is so important in today’s world. He shared this inspirational post on Twitter yesterday proclaiming that his assets will be divided equally between his daughter and his son.

The plaque he is holding up reads –
“WHEN I DIE, THE ASSETS I SHALL LEAVE BEHIND, SHALL BE SHARED EQUALLY BETWEEN MY DAUGHTER AND MY SON #GENDEREQUALITY #WEAREEQUAL.”

In India, it has always been a tradition where fathers usually leave all their assets and money to their sons. The daughters are usually ignored. Although this trend is changing slowly, the tradition is still prevalent in most parts of India.

And even if the assets are divided between a son and daughter, the daughter usually receives less than the son.
This is a noble gesture and an important message he has sent out to the people of India. Gender equality should be a norm and not a privilege. No woman should fight for something she is entitled to.
Thank you for sharing this Mr. Bachchan. We hope Indians follow in your footsteps and treat their daughters the same way they treat their sons.
