Dia Mirza has always come forth to lend her voice and time for a variety of social initiatives she truly believes in. This time Dia has associated herself with an NGO based in Delhi that works towards the betterment of underprivileged and giving them an opportunity to work in creative sectors.
In the year 2015, given the current scenario, the NGO's efforts are skewed towards the efforts for gender equality and woman empowerment.
As part of a larger picture for the current year, the NGO has planned a unique exhibition where writing works of women and girls across the world will be showcased to reflect how similar they are, regardless of where they hail from.
Dia Mirza who has always been vocal about her sentiments on gender bias and the need to encourage woman empowerment has come on-board in a unique way to support this unique thought.
The voice of this campaign is put forth in the word of Maya Angelou's poem titled 'And Still I Rise'. Dia Mirza has extended her support by bringing together various renowned women for this video from different walks of life to shoot a montage of them reciting this powerfully worded poem.
The video which features various personalities like Shbana Azmi, Lushin Dubey, Vidhusi Mehra, Aditi Roa Hydri, Konkana Sen Sharma, Ridhima Kapoor, voice some of the concerned fears and hopes of various young girls for the future.
