Even the smallest of steps can change the world. Because small steps come together to make a big impact. Now, instead of white-washed, severely edited pictures of models celebrating glitz, glamour, and impossible body standards, leading fashion magazines are featuring powerful women who are bringing about positive change in society.
In the past, Former Kerala Health Minister KK Shailaja graced the cover of Vogue. And now, West Bengal MP Mohua Moitra has been beautifully featured on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar.
The 46-year-old politician looked dignified and elegant in a gorgeous silk saree handwoven by artisans in West Bengal, reports The Indian Express.
She kept her look simple and did not add many accessories.
“I will continue to say what is on my mind…that is who I am. I am very lucky to be able to have hundreds of millions of people hear me, and I must, must, must, stand up and speak about what I believe is the truth, and what I feel is the pressing need of the hour. It is extremely important to me,” Mohua Moitra told the magazine.
