Women’s struggle for human rights commended

The Pakistan Peoples’ Party Human Rights Cell has commended women’s struggle for human rights on the National Day for Women. The cell members recounted that many women have made the nation proud. “Women of Pakistan have defined, strived for and worked towards a rights-based polity. Madar-e-Millat Fatima Jinnah, Shaheeed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto, Begum Nusrat Bhutto and Asma Jehangir are among many others role models for us. These women have stood up for democratic and constitutional rights of the people of Pakistan.”

The PPP led Coalition government has also made exemplary progress in giving women key positions in the government including a first woman Speaker, first woman Governor, first woman Foreign Minister, and first woman Chairperson of the Standing Committee for Defence. The largest anti poverty Benazir Income Support Programme’s four million cash grant recipients are women, which has given recognition to countless women who were hitherto deprived of their basic rights.-PR
