Key Quotes:
 
Priyanka Chopra on how much she values her freedom as a woman:
“A lot of woman around the world don’t have the ability to make choices for themselves, choices are made for them. I’m so blessed because my parents gave me the ability to have an opinion and make my own choices about my life. Just how much woman are standing up for themselves in India right now, it’s so inspiring. We never needed woman to find their voice, we always had a voice, we just needed people to listen and now we’re at a place where people are listening.”
 
Chopra on the benefits of technology:
“I’m a tech fan, I believe technology has changed the world. It was given us so much freedom, everything has its vices and virtues, but it’s given us so much freedom to be anything we want. Idea is the currency of the present, if you have an idea you can monetise it, it can be a business, it’s such a wonderful time to be creative and turn that creativity into business.”
 
Whitney Wolfe Herd on female empowerment:
“Women need empowerment globally, it doesn’t matter where it is and the more disempowered the mindset, the culture wherever that might be… you can even take America, there are different parts of the country which are a bit more archaic in mindset, a lot of people challenged us here… we thrive because the more disempowered, the more archaic the more desire there is for woman to rise and be equal.”
