Victoria’s Secret model Shanina Shaik didn’t stand for critics who tried to shame her for posting a nude photo on Instagram to mark International Women’s Day on Friday.
Shaik, 28, posted a nude photo of herself, blurring her nipple, with the caption, “Here’s to strong women. May we know them, may we be them, may we raise them. #internationalwomensday.”
Commenters didn’t find her nudity necessarily empowering for females.

The supermodel replied, “This is simply capturing a beautiful image of a raw woman’s body. Where is stripping? And shouldn’t we uplift women on international women’s day?”

Another fan attempted to clarify the previous critic’s remark, writing, “I think [the first commenter] is simply saying you don’t need to be naked on International Women’s Day. But yes we should uplift and support women but not in this way. [It’s] promoting the wrong idea.”
