I have always beleived that feminism is the fight for both and women both to be free from the pressure of their gender identity Swara told IANS. Any self-expression is only possible if you are conformable being who you are. There are so many pressures on Indian women that the real you or the real I is lost so I think in that sense this show is very relevant she added.
