Women Are Their Own Enemies, Opines Lakshmi Priyaa Chandramouli

Actress Lakshmi Priyaa Chandramouli has said something which is repeated often but not accepted by the concerned persons. “Women are their own enemies,” the 33-year old (still good-looking) actress has asserted on the eve of ‘International Women’s Day’ which was celebrated by women across the country yesterday.

Lakshmi, who created a huge controversy last year with the short film ‘Lakshmi’, is a post-graduate in human resource management. The actress, who has starred in Tamil, Telugu and Malalayalm films, was last spotted on Tamil screen in last year’s Richie which marked the debut as hero by Mollywood’s Nivin Pauly in Tamil films.

In a video released on her Twitter account, Lakshmi speaks openly about many such issues facing women. “We say for long that men have kept us in check but we should introspect ourselves whether all the problems are created my men alone. In fact, a woman is her worst enemy. Women, who speak about women’s rights, don’t think twice in commenting about a crying man that he cries like a ‘woman’.

“Doesn’t it mean that we ourselves agree that we are weak? Unless we change, we can’t hope to change anything around us. It’s the duty of a mother to create equality among her children when she brings them up. She can very easily teach her boys ethics and how to treat girls with dignity. Even in workplace, women don’t take kindly to a beautiful and successful colleague and pass cheap comments about her,” she said.
