“Actually he’s a male chauvinistic pig” Michelle Yeoh started saying. “Jackie and I are very good friends. I say this to him you know? to his face. He always believes that women should stay at home and cook and don’t do anything and be the victim except for Michelle!”

The people lauded her and appreciated her for speaking the truth and being such an inspiring woman to look up to.
