Cara Delev­ingne bats for women’s empowerment

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time Out -

Model-ac­tor Cara Delev­ingne (above) has started to “un­der­stand women’s empowerment”, and is des­per­ate to lift the morale of other women. The 24-year-old has opened up about fe­male equal­ity and says that she wants to boost the con­fi­dence of other women, re­ports fe­male­first.co.uk.

“I see, and I am more aware of my own ig­no­rance. Of what peo­ple say and how spoiled we are in the West — and ob­vi­ously my­self in­cluded,” Delev­ingne said.

“Now, I am start­ing to un­der­stand women’s empowerment a lot more and how I want to lift other women up. But you can’t do that un­less you lift your­self up. I’m still grow­ing ev­ery day. It’s a con­stant re­minder,” she added.

Al­though the Sui­cide Squad ac­tor wants to en­cour­age other peo­ple to feel con­fi­dent, she says that she strug­gled to stay pos­i­tive and used to put her­self down a lot.

About her the turn­ing point in her life, she said, “I started say­ing no, and re­al­is­ing what my strengths were, and be­liev­ing in my­self. I knew I needed to help [oth­ers].”
