Kalki Koechlin's advice for women is winning the Internet

On International Women's Day, Kalki Koechlin took to Instagram to share a picture of her chilling with her newborn daughter Sappho and pet Kiara.

Unlike most celebrities who posted sweet and inspiring messages, Kalki chose to tell women exactly what they wanted to hear. 

Here's what she wrote:

'Dear women,

'May you get to do exactly what you want and not what is expected of you or what you're supposed to do.

'May you give yourself time, love and rest.

'May you always remember to prioritise yourself in a world which might put you to one side, to pat yourself on the back for the 'invisible' work that you do, and to vocalise the troubles that you overcome.

'May you never refrain from laughing too loud, or expressing too aggressively or dressing too provocatively.

'May you look at yourself through the eyes of experience and celebration and not the objectification of the male gaze, may you learn the difference between well intentioned patriarchal advice and true feminist criticism.

'May you unhook your bra strap, get into your comfiest pyjamas and chill the f*** out.

'Love from a happy, exhausted feminist mama bear.'
