Today, we want to honour the following women:

This International Women’s Day, let’s remind our little girls that it’s not about being princesses, and damsels in distress. Let’s tell them instead that they should foster to be literary legends, doctors, lawyers, painters, and dreamers. Let’s teach them to be believers in themselves as opposed to believers in happily ever afters. And to show them how they can achieve their dreams, we will show them all the beautiful, inspirational women Pakistan has:

Today, we want to honour the following women:

    It is sad not to find Fatima Jinnah and Rana Liaqat in the list. It is best if those who are “alive” shall be kept in the list barring Benazir, Qandeel, Maryam, Sabeen etc.
    It is sad not to find any person from literary and performing arts side (both living & dead).Recommend

    So ET complies a list of all those women that have promoted a negative image of Pakistan. I’m not surprised.Recommend

  • liberal-lubna-fromLahore

    As always, real progressive liberal Pakistani women working tirelessly in their respective fields of film, drama, fashion,music, to promote a positive image of Pakistan have been exclusively LEFT OUT.

    This list seems more like an anti Pakistan propaganda.

    Qandeel should not eve be in the list. 1000 women in USA got murdered in white honor killings. USA has over 1000 magazines. Not a single one bestowed an honorary prestigious award to any one of those victims. But here, fake pakistani liberal aunties are using Qandeel’s story to paint a negative picture of Pakistan that is not there.Recommend

    Honor killings in USA?!!!WOW. Few odd cases have been Muslim immigrants.Recommend

  • liberal-lubna-fromLahore

    yeah all those serial killers in the USA lurking in women’s backyards are muslims too. You just cant call it honor killings. Thats it.Recommend
