Trapped in her home, in her body. In the situation in which she finds herself living. She doesn’t have a plan B. There is no escape,” she added. “She’s not crazy at all. She’s oppressed in many different ways. And she simply can’t take it anymore. There are many women around the world trapped in their homes, who pretend in front of their children. They try to pretend that things aren’t that bad. They do this to survive.” Cruz also pointed out: “I have PENELOPE CRUZ played so many mothers. I’ve made seven films with Pedro, and in five of them I play a mother. That’s not a coincidence. I have a very strong maternal sense. And I am fascinated by what happens in every family.” LIZ TRUSS Mona A There are women around the world trapped in their homes...They pretend... They do this to survive. Difficult family life Domestic violence is just one of several crucial issues tackled by L ’Immensita, which is based on Crialese’s memory of his difficult family life, with regards to his violent, closeminded father, and his experience transitioning from female to male in those days. In the movie, the oldest of the children in the family is a 12-year-old girl named Adriana, who wants to be a boy. She rejects her name and gender identity. This obstinacy breaks the fragile family’s balance. Though not strictly autobiographical, Adriana is based on Crialese’s memories. “My journey (transitioning from female to male) is very different from the journey of kids today,” the director said. “The important thing has been to manage to transform that pain. And the way I did that was to create stories,” Crialese added. — IANS S Liz Truss is set to become the Prime Minister of Britain, she joins an impressive company of first women currently ruling as many as 18 countries. Recently, Droupadi Murmu becoming the 15th President of India makes for an inspiring story. The firstever President from the tribal community, Murmu has overcome many challenges, personal as well as professional, to emerge as an inspiration to many across the globe. Celebs talk about their favourite women leaders and what makes them shine. FLYING HIGH While China, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia and Saudi Arabia along with the US, still await a woman president/prime minister/monarch, as many as 18 countries have women premiers. Sheikh Hasina is currently heading Bangladesh, Bidhya Devi Bhandari Nepal, Mette Frederiksen Denmark, Katerina Sakellaropoulou Greece, Jacinda Ardern New Zealand, Halimah Yacob Singapore and Samia Suluhu Hassan Tanzania, among others. Good leaders Women are surely more capable of being good leaders. Women are emotionally stronger and understand things at the root level, which translates into effective leadership. My favourite is the Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern. She joined the Labour Party at 18. And worked hard, growing step by step. She represented the youth as well. She worked actively to combat Covid-19 pandemic. Her sincerity is quite impeccable. Delnaaz Irani, actor Fresh perspective Being at the forefront of Indian politics for decades, Indira Gandhi left a powerful but controversial legacy in Indian politics.

Truss joined the Conservative Party in 1996. Married to accountant Hugh O’Leary, they have two daughters. father, Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru. Women demonstrate superior leadership values with fresh perspective. Jay Zaveri, actor Learning curve Michelle Bachelet, who served as the president of Chile is my favourite leader. She was the first female president of Chile. She instructed the government to lay away the gains when the price of copper, one of Chile’s primary exports, reached its peak. Bachelet worked towards lowering poverty and enhancing early educa- tion prospects. It appears that women have a distinct advantage over men when it comes to leadership. However, male and female leaders can mutually benefit from one another’s expertise. Nasirr Khan, actor Likeable & logical Former British PM Margaret Thatcher was one of the most powerful leaders and I admire her courage. And while many would have surrendered to societal pressure to choose a less difficult path, she continued heading straight for her aims.

Our President Droupadi Murmu ji is my favourite leader among women. She has endured so much in life, but still stood tall with dignity. People look up to me as an epitome of will and determination, but I look up to our President as a symbol of will, determination, courage and dignity. At the time when education was not given to adivasi women, she took up the cause and created a niche for herself, becoming the governor of Jharkhand. Now, as she is the President of this country, not only is it a great achievement but also truly inspiring for all the citizens.
