Kalki Koechlin, who has joined hands with the P&G Shiksha programme, says education is the key for gender equality.

“I was never a front bencher. I was very bad at maths. My skills were more on the creative side like arts, creative writing and acting. It’s important we try different skills apart from regular studies,” said Kalki.

A strong supporter of women empowerment and education, especially in rural India, Kalki said: “We have to educate girls, but we also have to educate boys about the fact that girls are equal. It’s important for both boys and girls.”
