Sona Mohapatra Shuts Down A Troll Who Asked, “Why All Feminists Show Cleavage To Compete With Men”


Sona Mohapatra Shuts Down  Sona Mohapatra is considered one of the most fearless voices in the industry when it comes to talking about issues that really matter. Pay disparity, equal singing and acting opportunities for women, blatant plagiarism of content in the music industry, and women’s rights – the singer has spoken out on the issues and problems that should really be addressed by the people who represent the culture and soft power of the country.

Sona Mohapatra Shuts Down  Recently, when almost the entire film industry spoke out in support of Rhea Chakraborty and began a ‘smash the patriarchy’ movement after being inspired by the T-shirt that the actor wore while being arrested by the NCB in the drugs case, Sona posted to talk about the real ‘smash the patriarchy’ movement. She said that the right way of ‘smashing patriarchy’ would be to trust more women filmmakers with bigger budgeted films and writing better roles for women.

Sona Mohapatra is not new taking on haters on social media and shutting down trolls. Her social media history would show that the singer has been at the receiving end of non-stop backlash from many over her views, but it also shows that over the years, Sona has perfected the art of a good clapback.

A Twitter user who went by the name Yogi Yogi tagged the talented singer and told her that she has been trying to impress the ‘Bolly gang’ despite being a ‘victim’. The tweet read.

“Why all feminists have to show cleavage in order to compete with men… and after seeing ur few interviews i think ur a victim of bolly gang but again ur trying to woo them to be i their gang. wat a dichotomy”

Now Sona, who never shies away from calling out people who don’t operate from their brains while writing out to her, took this troll heads on and told him that one should not mess with a feminist. She wrote,

“I’d suggest you treat the multiple ‘cleavages’ in your brain before talking with anyone, let alone with a ‘feminist’ trying to ‘woo’ the ‘bolly gang’’. (Cleavage, noun : a sharp division; a split.)”

Sona has been a champion of feminism, advocating the need for pay parity in the industry and speaking up for more women-centric films and worthy roles for female actors. Back in 2017, in a post on Facebook the singer, had explained the need for feminism, and a world where women are equal to men, neither superior or inferior. Sona wrote,

“For me, simply put, feminism means women are equal to men. Neither is inferior or superior. The ideal society in the future would be one in which we all operated & thought as ‘humans’ first & gender did not play a role in the treatment meted out to anyone’s opportunities in the world. While that is a utopian dream in the current day, the reason we need to have such discussions, debates & even fights is to work towards such a future. Attitudinal change in a society won’t happen without the same. This is the ‘good fight’, & worth fighting make no mistake.”

Sona had also shared her tips about the right way to smash the patriarchy, beginning with pay parity among actors, speaking up and trusting women directors.
