Why is #WomenHaveLegs trending?

Malayalam actor Anaswara Rajan, who recently turned 18, was trolled on social media for posting a picture wearing shorts and revealing her legs.

The actor, who worked in Thanneer Mathan Dinangal, had shared a picture from a photoshoot where she is seen wearing a pink top and shorts which the trolls thought was ‘inappropriate’ for her age, and ‘did not suit her culture.’

And before you knew it, fellow actors from the Malayalam film industry started posting pictures of themselves wearing shorts, skirts and dresses, revealing their legs with the hashtag #WomenHaveLegs #LegDay and #GirlsHaveLegsToo.

Within hours, it became an empowering movement against moral policing that encouraged women to feel empowered about their choices.
