Geeta exclaims, “I want to tell this to all women that they should care about the dreams of their husbands and loved ones and support them, but they should never think that their own life is not important, or their wishes are not important.”

In fact, this, 52-year-old Indian lingerie model is pushing e-commerce firms to hire older women for their advertising campaigns, challenging what she says are the ageist norms practised by many companies. In the largely conservative Indian society where religious and cultural norms limit women’s freedom to dress the way they want.

Geeta filed an online petition this year on Change.org, ‘Are women no more fit to become a lingerie model past a certain age?’. Believing that this move would bring about a change in the mindset of people in our country who think that women should dress and behave in a certain way.
