MUMBAI : Richa Chadha has constantly stood for feminism and spoken out against workplace sexism. She frequently speaks up in support of other actresses in the entertainment industry. She supported Aishwarya Rai Bachchan by saying, "Jalte hai log unse," in an interview that went viral last year.

She also criticized those who made fun of the beauty queen for attending Paris Fashion Week. Richa genuinely treasures the time she spent promoting and sharing the screen with other strong women in Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar.

She also attended a private get-together at Dia Mirza Rekhi's Mumbai home last week with Shabana Azmi, Urmila Matondkar, Konkona Sen Sharma, Divya Dutta, Sandhya Mridul, and Tannishtha Chatterjee. "I want to see you win (sic)" is the remark Dia wrote when she posted the pictures to Instagram. Many people saw the post and expressed their support for them breaking the stereotype of female actresses not getting along.

But in a chat with the popular news portal, Richa reveals that one woman’s win cannot amount to a win for her. “If it’s a toxic woman who maligns everybody else and who has been uncharacteristically nasty to gain attention and press, her victory isn’t my victory. We should celebrate everybody’s growth and evolution. But does it always happen? No,” she tells us candidly.

According to Richa, this mindset has stemmed from the many unpleasant experiences she’s had with powerful women in show business who have done her wrong but still wear a façade of feminism on social media. “I don’t think I subscribe to the fact that all women are saints. I’ve had some terrible experiences with female producers whose checks bounced and they pretend to be feminists on Twitter (now X),” she recalls.

The actor is getting ready to become a mother and says that she doesn't understand "the imposition of sisterhood on people" saying that she doesn't understand it. “I’ve also had toxic co-actors constantly competing with me by not giving the right cues and cutting out the lights in scenes. I can’t say that I have had a uniform, monolithic experience. Sisterhood definitely exists and it’s real when you build it, craft it and nurture it. But it takes more than one person to understand and create that,” shares Richa.

Richa explains how she believes the meaning of feminism has been twisted, “I think it’s an anti-feminist notion to think that women are not capable of evil. That’s just a dumb thing. We have enough vile women around us. Women defending rapists are vile, corrupt and horrible but they’re often in positions of power. They’re often given a platform by the media too.”

The actor from Fukrey and Gangs of Wasseypur continues, “Am I supposed to just naturally assume that they’re feminists only because they have a vagina? No. I know plenty of women who are downright patriarchal and misogynist and plenty of men who are feminists. It’s not a gendered thing.”
