We should stop worshipping Durga if we can’t give women basic respect. Any woman would choose the latter over the former anyday. And I’m sure Durga would totally approve. Happy Dussehra ! #SabrimalaTemple #RightToPray

Actress Sophie Choudhary also celebrated womanhood as she feels with #MeToo movement, women have begun a fight against the evils of the society.
“Happy Dusshera everyone! This year is truly special because women have come together to fight evil within our society… To fight those that abuse their power and think they can get away with it! Remember, every woman has Ma Durga within her. Never underestimate her power,” she wrote.

A very happy Dusshera to everyone. There are many stories of different incidents that happen during this period, where ultimately good prevails over bad/evil. How many have actually read the significance of this period? If you haven’t you must. And since it’s a holiday you can ? pic.twitter.com/OTTbsJ7cJF

We must seek the answers that why are our festivals celebrated & understand the underlying wisdom of our ancestors! 'Dash' 'Hara' means removal of 10 bad qualities within you!
This Dussehra, let's take an oath to win over our vices!?? pic.twitter.com/rZh8vhzkKl
