Internet trolls have long attempted to “slut-shame” women. This time, they went after Malayalam film actress Anaswara Rajan, who posted a picture of herself wearing shorts. She was soon joined by other stars like Rima Kallingal, Parvathy, and Nazriya, who all posted their photos with #WomenhaveLegs and #LegDay.
Social media can be a great platform on which to express yourself, unless you happen to be an Indian woman. In that case, every post attracts uninvited scrutiny, even more so if it happens to be a photo. Internet trolls have been attempting to “slut-shame” women for their choice of attire for as long as social media has been around, even while they blindly like photos of a topless Tiger Shroff doing his home workout on another tab. The bright side is that this usually leads to some epic clapbacks from the women involved, which is how #WomenHaveLegs became a trend this week.
