A Bengaluru-based journalist's Facebook post about an auto rickshaw driver slut-shaming her has gone viral over social media. 

Aishwarya Subramanian, recently shared her harrowing experience with an auto rickshaw driver who told her that she should  “dress appropriately”. He even took the liberty to lecture her why she should “dress like a woman and not a slut”.

Here is her post about what she went through while she was being publicly slut-shamed by an auto driver- 

"This man’s name is Srikanth. About five minutes ago I got out of his auto. The Metre was 40 but I asked him to keep 50 as it was hot outside. And then he looks at me for a second and says – “please don’t mind me but what you are wearing is inappropriate”. I stand there shocked. And then I tell him clearly that as long as I am paying he has no right to tell me what I can or cannot wear. Then he gets out of the auto to tell me why I shouldn’t be dressed like a slut (I am wearing a white summer dress that reaches my knee). A few men gather as I take pictures. One man who has gathered tells me that the auto driver is right. Apparently a girl who lives in a society like mine should be dressed more modestly and like a woman. I am about to start crying at this point. This is the first time I have been so publicly slut-shamed. Thankfully two men who came from a junk food store I frequent and told the auto driver and the moral police that I get to wear what I want when I want. I walk away feeling shell shocked and ashamed. You want to know why we fight for our dignity? Because even the clothes we wear makes us sluts. What is the point in being a girl in this country anymore? I feel so embarrassed. My building’s guard was standing right there as these men called me a slut for wearing the clothes I wore. This is who I am. These are the clothes I wear. Everyone else can f**k off. Anyone can share this post. I am done feeling ashamed for being me."

However, the slut-shaming part doesn't end here! Ever since she has shared her experience on the social media platform she has been receiving a lot of negative comments. Team Asianet Newsable spoke to Aishwarya and this is what she has to say " I don't want to be in the news any more. Too much of comments on how I am a publicity whore and the constant barrage has been overwhelming."
