Ac­tor Raveena Tan­don is known to back is­sues per­tain­ing to women em­pow­er­ment and has al­ways raised her voice to sup­port the cause. She is also work­ing closely with Unicef to pro­tect the rights of women and erad­i­cate child labour. More im­por­tantly, the ac­tor is very par­tic­u­lar when it comes to en­dorse­ments and opts only for women-ori­ented ones.

A source close to the ac­tor in­forms, “Raveena has al­ways rooted for pos­i­tive changes in so­ci­ety. At the age of 21, she adopted two girls and raised them as a sin­gle par­ent.”

It comes as no sur­prise then that even in terms of en­dorse­ments, Raveena has al­ways opted to en­dorse women-ori­ented brands. “This is be­cause Raveena has al­ways en­cour­aged ed­u­ca­tion for girls and wants them all to be in­de­pen­dent,” the source adds.

Raveena is an in­spi­ra­tion to women who wish to make the best out of their lives, and be suc­cess­ful in their re­spec­tive pro­fes­sions. She feels it is very im­por­tant to spread aware­ness that women are not ‘the weaker sex’. “I am ex­tremely proud to be born as a woman. I be­lieve it is the re­spon­si­bil­ity of ev­ery ci­ti­zen to en­cour­age women to take a stand and help them prove their ca­pa­bil­i­ties.”

Raveena is also part of the anti-ha­rass­ment com­mit­tee formed by the Cine and TV Artistes’ As­so­ci­a­tion (CINTAA) to tackle cases of sex­ual ha­rass­ment in the in­dus­try.
