It isn’t uncommon for any of us to hear a woman being addressed as a ‘bitch’. Whether it’s the girl who breaks your heart, your female boss who chides you for not performing well or the female celebrity who’s caught in a scandal. Time and again, women have been addressed as a ‘bitch’ whenever they’ve done what we, especially men, didn’t want them to do. And women have always taken this word as the ultimate insult that could come their way.
In a powerful new video for Blush, actress, singer and songwriter Shruti Haasan has written and performed a monologue that talks to women, and men about being a ‘bitch’.
She single-handedly thrashes down the so-called ‘insult’, urging women to take it in their stride as a compliment for their spirit and abilities to change the rules and defy the norms.
It’s time to be a ‘bitch’ and a proud one at that!
