Actress Taapsee Pannu who is enjoying her success in Bollywood because of her versatility in performance is also is known for doing her bit for social cause. Having worked in films like PINK and Naam Shabana, Taapsee became the face of woman empowerment having portrayed strong roles on screen.

Taapsee has always been vocal about the need for gender equality and women safety. After having supported several causes related to self-defence and supporting the teachings of defence education for young girls. She had previously supported an initiative, which was her idea in her own school to start giving self- defence classes to young children. Today on National Girl child day Taapsee plans to extend this by branching out the idea of helping spread education of self- defence to young girls. She pledges on this Girl child day to support and activate more such initiatives through the help of experts, self-defence educators and through the means of local NGOs in different parts of the country.

Speaking on this Taapsee said, "I wish on this National Girl child day we stand for each other and for oneself and we make it a collaborative effort. In a patriarchal society like ours, providing education and the right mindfulness for young girls from the beginning has become imperative. So on this day, I wish to activate more initiatives for these girls so that they become independent and can fight for themselves. We are in conversation with few experts and NGO's and I hope it works out soon."
