The Canadian star continues to be vocal about gender equality and women empowerment and she became a Global Ambassador for Plan International Canada last year. She expressed her strong opinion on women empowerment recently, she said,
“From my experience of my short 19 years, only now entering the workforce, have I realized, damn, it’s harder to be a woman,” Ramakrishnan told Yahoo Canada. “I don’t regret it, I love being a woman, but damn is it hard.”
“A lot of activism is fighting for what we believe in and marching on, but it’s also important to celebrate the achievements that we have,” she said. “Also, just to give us more emphasis on, hey this is what’s going on now, what can we do next.”
“It’s important to have females represented because we deserve to take up that space, number one, we are entitled to that space,…but still, it is a fight,” Ramakrishnan said.
