You have been warned.
This past weekend, 12 Pakistani women participated in a photo series titled 'Try Beating Me Lightly' in a response to the bill proposed by the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) allowing Pakistani men to lightly beat their wives if need be.
Each portrait was accompanied by an overview of the consequences the woman's husband would face if he ever put his hand on her and included the #TryBeatingMeLightly.
Here's a look at some of the portraits:
Meet Adeeqa Lalwani, here's what she had to say, "#TryBeatingMeLightly, I’ll become the destruction you will never forsee.”
Meet Shagufta Abbas, here's what she had to say, "TryBeatingMeLightly – I’ll break that hand you raised at me. Remaining damage? I’ll leave it up to Allah.”
Meet Priyanka Pahuja, here's what she had to say, "TryBeatingMeLightly and I’ll run a car over you with my 7 years of driving experience!”
The series was captured by photographer Fahhad Rajper and can be viewed in its entirety here.
Since the series made its debut #TryBeatingMeLightly has been trending on social media. Pakistani women everywhere are using the hashtag to warn men about the consequences they will face if they ever beat them.
Again, I will say, you have been warned.
