“I am a teacher of a college where 80 percent of the students are girls and of that, the majority are Muslims. These girls are not wearing a dress as per the religious tradition. They are not covering their chests with hijab. But showing part of it is like a slice of red watermelon being displayed.”

In response to this, a campaign named, “Maaru thurakkal samara (protest to bare the breasts) was launched by a woman named Arathy and was later on joined by an activist Rehana.

Arathy held sliced melon in front of her breast followed by a bare-chested image. She further wrote,

“The message is that there is nothing vulgar about a woman’s body. I shared the images to assert that my body is my right, and no one can dictate what is right and wrong. When Arathy began a conversation about this, I was happy to join her.”

“Since I have already been quite vocal about these issues in the past, I asked my friend Diya to share the images. What we should discuss is not the photos per se, but why such a movement is needed”.

“There is no vulgarity in a man’s body, but when it comes to women, the standards change. A woman’s body is seen as a sex tool and such a public mindset must change. Women’s breasts, their sexuality, all of this is only normal. I want this campaign to be a step towards having healthy discussions on the subject.”
