Pakistani actor Nadia Jamil reminds sexual assault survivors that “the shame is not ours”

There are millions of debates after a girl is raped or sexually harassed and it takes minutes for people to judge the victim. “What was she wearing, why was she wearing that, omg how is she going to live now!”

The brutal rape and murder of seven-year-old Zainab Ansari in Kasur has got every woman in Pakistan speaking up against crimes against women and men who get away with them easily. Pakistani actress Nadia Jamil recently gave a powerful message through her tweets. She opens up about being sexually harassed by men who are happily living their lives in other parts of the world.

She also pointed that the way boys are being raised is big issue. We need to raise them right!
We collectively need to bring a change in our society and make this world a safer place for everybody. We have been silenced for far too long, all of us, and we definitely need to find a way to stop this.

Like Nadia says, let’s all of us begin from our homes and teach our boys right.
