Mumbai: DJ Jenny D, a Goa-born Mumbai based actress and DJ has posed nude for a NGO campaign- supporting reservation for women on the occasion of the country’s 65th Independence Day.
The Mumbai- based NGO Citizen Action Forum has launched an awareness campaign on India’s Independence Day titled ‘Are Women in India really Independent?’
Bollywood and fashion photographer Vickky Idnaani shot a special poster and print shoot for the campaign.
The campaign focuses on creating more jobs for women in areas like judiciary, local-self government and allied areas.
As reported by a daily, DJ Jenny D said, "We demand more jobs for women particularly in villages and smaller towns. Jobs for women in important positions of government, judiciary, police, local self government and financial institutions will reduce corruption in India and crimes against women will come down drastically.
Women should have the freedom to choose their partner, choose the job or profession they want to or feel inclined to and even choose their dress code or the outfits they want to wear.”
“Women should be at par with men not just in the cities, but also in the smallest and remotest villages and small towns of India. On Independence Day after 64 years of independence, women are still raped every day in India. Teenage girls are forced into marriages that they are against," the outspoken DJ said.
When asked about the nude shoot, DJ Jenny D said, "The photograph is very artistically shot and is very aesthetic and glamorous. It is not vulgar at all."
