Farhan Akhtar launches campaign for women’s safety


Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar has taken the social networking route for a campaign titled MARD – Men Against Rape and Discrimination, ““If you are a man who respects women… her rights, her dignity, her independence, her mind, her body, her life… you are a MARD,” tweets Farhan.

He has also urged all men to sport the logo and spread the message and awareness all around. According to him schools should introduce programs that educate boys on the meaning of masculinity and teach them at the age when self-awareness begins that being a man involves compassion, gender sensitivity & respect for women.

Earlier too Farhan has spoken about women’s safety and had even written a poem on women-related issues after a young girl was gang-raped in Delhi.
