Aurat March 2019
Pakistani women are quite eager to become the part of the Aurat March 2019 that is scheduled on Women’s Day (8th march).
Now the days are gone when women were considered just a mere sex object having no purpose of living. However, in some backward areas, the problem still exists. Women are subjected to oppression. Where male chauvinism is highly appreciated while degrading women’s role in society.
The world is progressed now. We are living in quite a modern era. Women across the world, are familiar with their rights now. Modern women exactly know where they stand and what their rights are. They don’t tend to serve male chauvinism. They are ready to fight for their rights.
Marginalization, chauvinism, patriarchy, gender inequality and misogyny are some of the social evils that are uprooting out moral values. We need to change these social
perspectives about male dominant society. Women should be given due importance. Moreover, honor killing and harassment are some other issues that are still faced by women across the world. We need to put a full stop to this oppression. Women power should be taken into progress.
Here are some of the tweets by our nation’s brave women.
یومِ نسواں کے موقع پر ہم محترمہ فاطمہ جناح کو سلام عقیدت پیش کرتے ہیں جو قیامِ پاکستان کی جدوجہد کے دوران جناب قائد کے ساتھ ڈٹی رہیں۔ ہم خواتین کیلئے محفوظ اور سازگار ماحول فراہم کرنے کے عہد کی تجدید کرتے ہیں تاکہ وہ اپنی اہلیت کے مطابق قومی تعمیر و ترقی میں اپنا حصہ ڈال سکیں۔ pic.twitter.com/VL86CJGMTr

#WhyIMarch because when women speak up against sexual harassment they are slapped and threatened with law suits. Stop silencing victims and survivors. #humAurtain ab darnay wali nahin. #AbAurNahin #Timesup 👊🏾 #AuratMarch2019 #AuratMarchLahore #Metoo

Not only the women, but we have also a large number of men who are appreciating the Aurat March. The nation is proud to have those men who actually understand the importance and vitality of women.
Because its been 13 years #mukhtarmai, raped, has been seeking justice, still pending by the apex court. #QandeelBaloch is waiting for justice from the last 3 years, the complicit character is roaming free.
When patriarchal society fails, then no excuses. Bear this

Many of our feminist allies are offended when i asked them to change the notion of freedom on the basis of conditions that leftist of ruling elites must lean toward lower classes.
