[Relatively_Friendly] Just Look At this Acid Attack Victim

 

Acid Attack Survivor Becomes Face Of Fashion Brand In India


There are approximately 1,000 acid attacks in India every year. Laxmi, who goes by her first name, was attacked by a scorned suitor when she was just 15. Now 26, she has become an advocate for women affected by acid attacks, and this year will model for an Indian clothing label for their 'Face of Courage' campaign.
"This opportunity to represent an apparel brand was a platform for me to set an example for women like me to be confident and have courage despite their physical appearances, Laxmi told the BBC. "This was also a platform for me to send a clear message to criminals that women will not lose courage even after they are attacked with acid to destroy their physical beauty."

"People victimise acid attack survivors, but I think we need to come out of this mindset"
