Ayesha Omar Claps Back At Trolls Moral Policing Her Over Her Outfits
Look Beyond My Limbs - Demands Ayesha Omar
It's extremely dangerous being a woman in today's wild society, especially in a country like Pakistan, where you are judged on the basis of your looks, outfits, or anything else. Harassment cases are on the rise and women have it really tough to even breathe, let alone speak their mind freely.
In such circumstances, strong women like Ayesha Omar are the need of the hour and other celebrity women are joining in the act as well, fulfilling their civic duty and educating the masses about women empowerment and what it's like to be a woman in today's male-centric society.
The Bulbulay superstar and notable celebrity opened up last year about how she dealt with harassment and how it's so widely prevalent in the entertainment industry and now she has very rightly given a shut-up call to social media trolls.
Some people slammed her for wearing a bold dress during the virtual Lux Awards ceremony recently and Ayesha Omar gave them a befitting reply.
Responding to the trolls on Instagram, the Karachi Se Lahore actress wrote:
"My humble two bits on this: I’m definitely not promoting/asking/urging women to expose or not expose their bodies. That is their own choice, as wearing this dress was mine. As wearing whatever you want, is yours."
She further added:
"This dress was sent to me as it is. I had no input in the design, length, structure, or type of dress they were making for me. They only asked for my size. They contacted me themselves and sent me this outfit in June. I wasn’t paid to wear or promote it either and was waiting for an appropriate opportunity to wear it. I’m showcasing their work/talent."
Ayesha Omar went on to describe the meaning of ‘Empowerment’, saying “the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one's life and claiming one's rights.”
