The Leading Pakistani actress Mira Sethi has criticized her dress for being selected for the 20th Lux Style Awards. She saying that it is always interesting to see negative comments on pictures of influential women.

Mira Sethi also wrote in the caption that: “
It’s always fascinating to see trolls go nuts under photos of public-facing women in dresses or costumes or anything the trolls deem “vulgar.”
Go home. I don’t dress for you, I don’t dress for anyone or anything other than my own sense of joy and play and expansion. The men of this country are obsessed with policing women, constantly defining their ‘honour’ in relation to women’s bodies and clothing and appearance. It is also smallminded, decayed, hateful thing to do. You want to disempower us because a deep part of you is hurting and angry. I get it. It’s societal and it is ugly.
To the women who continue to secularize public spaces with their words and clothes and defiance: you inspire me. On the face of it. It looks merely glitzy and silly. But only those subjected to the heat of abuse know that simply by being – by asserting with our voices and bodies – we are clawing back space from rotten hierarchies of power and control.”
