Suman Rao also holds a very strong opinion about gender bias that exists in our patriarchal Indian society. During a pageant, Rao spoke about gender inequality and the stereotypes that we face in the world, precisely taking into consideration, the community she comes from. She said, "I come from a community where gender inequality and other stereotypes are still into existence, so when I saw two primary choices in front of me, to either accept the conditions those were in existence or to take the responsibility for changing the same, I chose the latter one."
