Laxmi Agarwal (born 1 June 1990) is an Indian acid attack survivor, a campaigner for rights of acid attack victims, and a TV host.

Agarwal was attacked in 2005 at the age of 16, after rebuffing the romantic advances of Naeem Khan. Her story, among others, was told in a series on acid attack victims by Hindustan Times.

She has since established grassroots campaigns for tackling the surge of acid attacks; one of her petitions has led the Supreme Court to order the central and state governments to regulate the sale of acid and the Parliament to enable easier prosecutions of acid attack perpetrators.She was the former director of Chhanv Foundation, a NGO dedicated to help acid attack survivors in India.

In 2019, she was honored with the International Women Empowerment Award from the Ministry of Women and Child Development, the Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation, and UNICEF for her campaign of Stop Sale Acid.In 2014, she received the International Women of Courage award at the hands of First Lady Michelle Obama.

Agarwal and other acid attack survivors started a hunger strike demanding immediate justice and rehabilitation for acid attack survivors. She wrote a poem describing her situation during the incident.

While she was in the US to receive the International Women of Courage award, she was praised by the US first lady Michelle Obama and others for her campaign against acid violence.

Agarwal was in a relationship with social activist Alok Dixit. However, she has been separated from her partner since 2015,When they were together, Dixit decided not to get married and instead opted to be in a live-in relationship. “We have decided to live together until we die. But we are challenging society by not getting married.

We don’t want people to come to our wedding and comment on Laxmi’s looks. The looks of a bride are most important for people. So we decided not to have any ceremony,” said Dixit.Their families have accepted the relationship and also their decision not to have a ceremonial wedlock.
