Celebrated Pakistani actress Rabya Kulsoom has appeared on the ‘Adnan Faisal Podcast’ where she talked about her entry into the industry.

She deliberated upon feminism and rubbished malicious campaigns against efforts to protect women's rights.

Rabya Kulsoom shared her thoughts on feminism and the Aurat March across Pakistan expressing concern over the way feminism is perceived.

"Feminism is being misperceived here, I think."

She expressed her disappointment over the failure to take the message of Aurat March to the target it had been devised to reach out.

"I feel that feminism is not reaching out to those it is for.

"If a man in the interior sees a placard that says, 'Find your own sock'... what impression will it give him? Do you think the right message has been conveyed where it is needed? And if it did reach there, it went in a way very wrong way. He will beat his wife three more times after reading that placard."

“This is not feminism… feminism is something more than this…please stop making jokes about these household chores of husband and wife as it depends on mutual understanding of both.”

“My husband microwaves food for me and helps me in my work whereas it’s my responsibility to ready his clothes, socks, food, etc”, she added.

Rabya stressed that feminism extends far beyond domestic chores and should encompass broader issues such as women's rights to education and career advancement.

“Please feminism is beyond this. It is vast and bigger than this. You've changed the meaning at the start," remarked Rabya.

She voiced her support for the Aurat March but disapproved of hating men rather than advocating for women's rights.

According to Rabya, the essence of Aurat March should revolve around empowering women rather than vilifying men.

"Aurat March does not mean hating men. Aurat March is for women's rights. Right to education, where you can't stop your daughter from studying. You will not stop your daughter from doing the job or getting ahead in her career. Our feminism and our Aurat March are limited to men and hating them.”

“Don't take care of your husband or search for or wash his clothes, don't give him breakfast.' Is this feminism?”, she questioned.

“What nonsense is this?" asked the actor.
