 Aishwaryaa appointed UN Ambassador

'I am aware that women are not in the level playing field and need to prove themselves again and again. But, certainly, this is the time to remember the journey of how far we have come.

We would do a great disservice to ourselves if we are not celebrating our small victories,' said Aishwaryaa Rajinikanth Dhanush today after being elected as UN Women's Advocate for Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment in India.

'Let's chalk out the plan, translate it into actions and with indomitable spirit, let us go ahead. I pledge to do my part and I will do my best to see the woman that I want to admire in the country', she added. 

As for being UN advocate, Aishwaryaa will help raise awareness of UN Women's code message of gender equality and empowerment across India, intending to achieve a planet 50-50 by the year 2030.

After electing her as UN advocate, the representative of UN Women India, Dr Rebecca Reichmann Tavares said, 'We are delighted to have Aishwaryaa as UN Women's Advocate in India.

As a filmmaker, dancer and writer she is perfect to reach out to a range of audiences, particularly to the young people and encourage them to speak out and act.'
