Justin Trudeau will be making some wonderful memories with his family during their official visit to India this week, but one of the highlights was surely a visit to the famed Taj Mahal. The Trudeaus posed for picture-perfect snaps in front of the country's most iconic landmark, with Justin revealing that he last visited the mausoleum some 35 years ago.

Taking to Instagram, Justin uploaded a gorgeous family portrait with his wife Sophie Gregoire and their three children: ten-year-old Xavier, nine-year-old Ella-Grace and Hadrien, three. "I was about Xav's age when I first visited the Taj Mahal almost 35 years ago... and it's amazing to be back with him & the family on Day 1 of our trip to India," he wrote.

"I worry, because as a father, son, husband, and citizen, I witness the unequal obstacles women and girls face every day," he wrote. "It's 2017, yet in Canada and around the world, women and girls still face violence, discrimination, stereotypes that limit them, and unequal opportunities that keep them from achieving their dreams."

He added: "It is maddening to me that my brilliant, compassionate daughter will grow up in a world where, despite everything she is as a person, there will still be people who won't take her voice seriously, who will write her off—simply because of her gender." The politician added that feminism was also important for his sons, Hadrien and Xavier, to "escape the pressure to be a particular kind of masculine that is so damaging to men and to the people around them".
