Pakistani supermodel, Amna Babar has opened up about her ordeal with harassment in a recent Instagram post.
The 25-year-old model was on her way to pick her mother up after running some errands, when she was harried by some boys who started swearing and making obscene faces at her. “I am very disturbed and upset after what just took place. I truly wonder what kind of society we live in,” Babar wrote.
In the wake of #MeToo and the hullabaloo over Meesha Shafi’s harassment accusations against Ali Zafar, many Pakistani women have come forth to share their own experiences at the hands of sexual predators.
Armeena Khan of Janaan fame, for instance, took to Twitter to share her story. “I was in Lahore in a burka and no one knew who I was when I was groped,” the actor revealed.Khan added that the way a woman dresses has nothing to do with becoming a victim of sexual harassment as she was completely covered by the garment she wore when the incident occurred.
