"Why in our country is a woman, irrespective of her socio-economic status, so vulnerable? Is it too much to ask for women to be able to walk the streets freely without the fear of being assaulted or attacked? Be it Delhi's notorious streets or Mumbai's trains, Bangalore's BPO workers or the women being burnt on suspicion of affairs in Bundelkhand and women being killed for same caste marriages in Haryana and Rajasthan....the list is endless. A woman is worshipped in the form of Durga and Saraswati and she is eve-teased and made a victim of ill-treatment in our country. How ironic is that? These are some of the issues that Kareena feels very strongly about," said our source.

The Bollywood superstar wants the cold facts to be highlighted and getting citizens to sign the petition to be presented before the President, Pratibha Patil, one of the topmost positions in the country, and held by a woman!

"Kareena feels that this will help spread awareness amongst the common man. When a celebrity like Bipasha Basu is not spared one can imagine the grind the common women must be experiencing daily," said the source.
