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 could be seen as an invitation to write bad things about her (which includes getting sexually harassed). She added, “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?

Sivananthi Thanenthiran, executive director of the Asian-Pacific Resource & Research Centre For Women (Arrow) speaks to BFM.

To be fair should there not be moral policing of men as there may be some aspects in daily lives of some men which may not be in compliance with religious norms or teachings?
Could relevant authorities provide some guidance and guidelines?
Bless all
