The Moral Policing of Women Must End!

The Moral Policing of Women Must End!

Student activist Ain Husniza’s recent selfies came under attack on social media. 

One lady Tweeted that while she agreed with Ain about making schools safer for students, the way Ain posed in the picture can be seen as an invitation to write bad things about her (which includes getting sexually harassed). She also said, “I don’t agree with people sexually harassing you, but your pics itself…”

Why do women constantly have to endure this oppressive moral policing, not just from men, but from other women too?
