She gave reference of an ad for a hair removal cream, saying that it was what pushed her to open up about this topic.

In the post, Mir says she was offered a “campaign by a company promoting a hair removal cream”, however, she refused it. The cricketer says the ad for both Pakistan and India was “magnifying a girl’s concern about how she looks on a basketball court”.

She continued to add that campaigns which body shame women do not show how strong or talented they are leading to questions like “are the talent, passion, and skill of a girl, not enough for her to play sports?”

Reaching out to young girls aspiring to take up sports, she says, “Make no mistake: you need strong arms, not smooth arms, on a sports field.”

In her 12-year long career as a sportswoman, Mir has rejected several promotional campaigns which have somehow been affiliated with directly and indirectly shaming women.

“I request all sponsors and celebrities to ensure that when we engage young girls to fulfil their dreams, we show them a path that gives them actual confidence rather than disabling them by making them self-conscious.”

Many of her followers applauded the Pakistani sportswoman and thanked her for lifting their spirits while referring to her as a real role model and idol for girls.
