Speaking on the movement that never got its due in India, Shraddha said, "When women came out, the biggest step that was taken was to shut and shame them.

She further added, "A lot of women gave up and went back to work. The West has a better understanding of what the word sexual abuse or harassment means. There are some concepts that they understand way better. In India, it is more like 'not all men'. It ended up being a joke here. At a party that I went, people made jokes about the movement. If you take active steps, they call you feminists as if it's such a bad thing. We have so many battles to win to achieve that."
