Anoushey Ashraf is known to be vocal and makes headlines every now and then. The actress recently opened up about being harassed.
While talking to a reputed media outlet, Anoushey talked about how women are harassed in the industry. She said, ‘Women around us who came from relatively less privileged households, were regularly molested, propositioned, given lesser money and odd jobs.’
While talking about her own experience the actress said, ‘I didn’t know until I saw Pakistani women come out with their stories of harassment and abuse.’ The Sehra Main Safar actress says only then did she realize that she had been harassed too and has a similar experience as well. ‘Even I have been sexually harassed as a child.’
She gave her views on how being a girl, the Minar-e-Pakistan incident mentally disturbed her. ‘It heightened my anxiety,’ she said. ‘When they were ripping her clothes off I felt like I was being touched.’ Ashraf says you have to be a woman to understand what it feels like.
