Actor-cum-model Iman Ali’s comments on ‘Feminism’ has taken the internet by storm and people are sharing their views on it.
A clip from Iman’s old interview with Iffat Omar went viral on social media in which she was sharing her views on Feminism. “First, I think we should understand what feminism is,” Iman responded to a question.
“Feminism, to me, is to celebrate being a woman. Women trying to portray or become like men cannot be feminism because then you are negating your whole celebrating your womanhood. So, trying to become a man is not feminism,” she added.
The actress also advocated for paying female artists on the basis of their work. “If you are as good as your male actor at your job, you deserve to be paid as much as your male actor,” she said.
Her comments related to feminism and women equality got mixed reactions on Twitter. Some people think she was wrong with her concept of feminism.
ya Allah who is going to tell these paki celebs that bringing up their own definition of feminism and thinking they r smarter than the ppl who invented it is not quirky😭 https://t.co/urPXvD1wi6

Unfortunately, all over the world the word #Feminism is not conveying the accurate sentiments of all women. Feminism is a way to get equality as a human being. It’s not a battle between genders based on superiority. https://t.co/PS5c0syqxe

“Enjoy your womanhood” she says, in a state where to even be born a woman is considered a disgrace. Such blind, nonsensical privilege from an “actor” who’s probably had it embarrassingly easy all her life. https://t.co/qCLLu7Rtbx

Gender pay gap isnt actorism it’s inequality. Feminism isn’t dictating women in their affairs it is about leaving the matters in her own hand. Please know what feminism is before making a clown outta yourself on public TV. https://t.co/NyJLPkU5rr

Whereas, a lot of people appreciated Iman for speaking the real meaning of feminism.
I don’t know who she is but she makes good points.

Whoever this lady is … I salute her… I couldn’t have agreed more … she’s the ideal celebrity one can look upto. I have become fan of her intellect.
First time I have heard someone talk of feminism, the right way. I have been called chauvinist for the same reason. https://t.co/30sgM1rkB5
