Besides lusting after Sonam Kapoor’s immaculate wardrobe and her enviable sense of style, we also admire her mind and how she always speaks it. She has never shied away from calling things out for what they are; after all, diplomacy just doesn’t become her and she wouldn’t have it any other way! So it is with great joy and pride that we present our Women’s Day cover that stars Sonam Kapoor in all her headstrong glory. Apart from making the shoot exceptionally peppy and positive with her energy and charm, she also spoke about how she has always lived the way she wanted, and that every woman should do the same.
Keeping with the theme of the issue, Kapoor also opened up about having been molested as a teenager and how that incident has made her a stronger woman today. “Just like we block out the trolls, we can block out the noise from people who want to shame and blame us. As women, we need to stand by each other and believe in ourselves. The rest is all background noise,” is something she wants to remind every woman. Our big story features team Femina talking about that one incident among many when they were eve-teased, catcalled, sexually molested or stalked, and what they were wearing when it happened.
