Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Os­car-win­ning ac­tor Cate Blanchett (left) says that women are fac­ing a tough time to­day and they need to stick to­gether. In an in­ter­view with Glam­our mag­a­zine, the 48-year-old says that as a mother, she feels even more re­spon­si­ble for rais­ing her chil­dren in such a man­ner that they grow up re­spect­ing women.

“I think women are in a very chal­leng­ing place at the mo­ment. And the chal­lenge is to band to­gether no mat­ter what your so­cio-eco­nomic stand­ing is. We’re all fe­male hu­mans,” says Blanchett.

The Carol ac­tor, who re­cently adopted a girl child, says now it serves as a daily re­minder that she has to lead by ex­am­ple. “I’ve felt that way rais­ing sons, too. Be­cause as a mother of sons, you have a re­spon­si­bil­ity to in­stil in them the need to re­spect and the ben­e­fits of re­spect­ing women,” says Blanchett.
