It seems Taapsee Pannu is currently the torch bearer of women empowerment in India. The actress has always been vocal in public forums and social media platforms about the problems women go through in their daily life. She is always been in the forefront to raise questions against women atrocities in the society. Even her films deal with the subject of women empowerment. As one such step towards Women's Safety, Taapsee recently she wrote a letter to her school in New Delhi and to her college to introduce self-defense coaching classes for young girls and women’s.

She requested the authorities of the respective institute’s to start with self-defense and martial arts classes soon in their premises so that at early age girls in school learn to empower themselves through self-defense. She also ensured whatever help is required for this initiative will be taken care by the actress.

Tapsee says, “I think with the given situation we are in, it's important to empower girls from a young age and I feel self-defence as a concept has nothing to do with someone's sex. One should be strong and should be able to learn how to tackle a situation should it arise where their security is being threatened. I think a change always starts with small steps and for me, that was to reach out to my school and request and assist them to begin a course for self-defense for students from a young age. The idea isn't to just let them learn how to combat but also understand the importance of self-security and know when to utilise their self-defense knowledge.”

Her principal shared her letter with management. And In fact, they are introducing self-defense and karate in the school and for this, they have already enrolled a professional who will coach them in the upcoming vacation.
