Star of the Divergent series Shailene Woodley went on a backpacking trip across Europe and also made a stop at India for some time. Being a believer of a possession free lifestyle Shailene travelled with only essential clothing To her disposal. Speaking her heart out in a recent interview Woodley disclosed her take on feminism and a lot more about the growth of her character in the sequel movie The Divergent Series – Allegiant.
While travelling across India Shailene noticed a lot of bumper stickers on cars that propagated the idea ‘Saving the girl child’. This took Shailene by surprise as she confessed “Being here (America) and rooting for women and equal rights and then you go to India and every single car says, “Save a Girl” on the bumper. And you say, “What does that mean?” And you’re told, “It’s literally save a young girl’s life.” Because a lot of people who are born as women [India] don’t get the chance to live. It just puts so many things in perspective about how the work we’re doing here in America is so important because it does infiltrate down to other countries.”
