Richa stands for equality

Actor Richa Chadha has joined a movement to celebrate the strong, resilient women of India. She has extended her support to a special edition of Oxfam India’s fundraising walkathon — the Oxfam Trailwalker-virtual challenge — set to take place around International Women’s Day 2021. The idea behind this edition is to aware people and empower them to fight and end all kinds of discrimination against women.

Just like the previous one in 2020, this one will take place virtually keeping in mind the pandemic restrictions and social distancing guidelines. Starting from February 25 to March 6 and March 8 to 17 2021, the edition is themed around #WalkForHer, with the tagline, ‘Walk to end all discrimination against women.’

The pandemic has been tough on everyone but women and the marginalised communities bore the real brunt of it. Statistics paint a grim picture of women suffering due to domestic, professional and health issues. The theme is a response to the countless examples of gender-based violence, extreme injustice and deep rooted discrimination against women that shocked the nation in 2020.

Richa says, “The way we treat our women in emergencies is a testament to how much we as a society respect the gender at large. Our fight for equal opportunities for women is consistent. A movement for equality, this call to is a step in the direction of zero discrimination.”
