March 8 happens to be the International Women’s Day and to mark the day in advance, actress Amy Jackson has set an example by doing a photo-shoot for a digital magazine with the theme, ‘embracing your flaws.’ In recent times, there have been plenty of instances when women including celebrities, have been body-shamed on social media platforms and Amy challenges those body shamers by posing as naturally as possible. The latest photo-shoot is close to her heart. She has always wanted to talk to young girls about accepting their bodies and not setting unrealistic standards of beauty. Though she has applied makeup on her face, Amy decided to go natural and flaunted her freckles in the close-up shot.
Amy confirms, “It is really important for girls to accept their body, their flaws and feel beautiful about it. Nowadays, there is immense pressure on us to look a certain way, and a lot of young girls are trying to achieve that. But I feel we should not be a part of this. I am glad and happy to do a shoot of this kind and create awareness about this issue.”
