Mumbai, India (Commonwealth Union)_ Priyanka Chopra posted an Instagram photo from her recent conversation with US Vice President Kamala Harris at the Women’s Leadership Forum conference hosted by the Democratic National Committee. The actress also posted photos and videos from the conference, as well as penned a long message where she discussed voting rights.
In the message, she wrote: “While I don’t vote in this country – my husband can and one day, my daughter will.” The actress also discussed how, in ancient times, the world undercut women’s authority, but today women are in a position where they can correct the wrongs collectively. In her letter, she also lauded WLF (World Leader Forum) and Secretary Hillary Clinton, a founding member of this organization, for inviting her and involving her in these crucial discussions.
The actress opened her message with a quotation from Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She wrote: “Women belong in all places where decisions are being made. It shouldn’t be that women are the exception.” She continued: “Since the very beginning, the world has undermined the power of women. We’ve been shunned and silenced, but thanks to the sacrifices and tenacity of so many selfless women, we are in a place today where we can come together and work collectively to right the wrongs. This was a key take away from the conversation I had the honor to moderate with @vp, Kamala Harris at the Women’s Leadership Forum conference in Washington DC last night.”
The Dostana actress added: “Over the last two years, humanity has experienced some of the biggest challenges that we will see in our lifetime. We are faced with an urgent need for stability and progress, and for America that starts at the polls on November 8th. Everyone has a role to play towards that… to be part of the civic process and to exercise the right to vote, especially women because we need to be actively involved in ensuring our rights are being taken care of.”
Regarding the right to vote in the USA, Priyanka wrote the following. She penned: “While I don’t vote in this country – my husband can and one day, my daughter will. My conversation with VP Harris centered around the most pressing issues, that, in order to be addressed, needs to have a clear vision and plan.” She further wrote: “Thank you to the WLF and Secretary Hillary Clinton, a founding force in establishing this organization, and for including me in these important conversations, among an incredible collection of accomplished women.” Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas tied the knot in 2018 and are blessed with a daughter named Malti Marie Chopra Jonas in 2022.
