mard march

Aurat March 2019 took place on the 8th of March in both Karachi and Lahore. It highlighted important issues like early marriages, dowry, honour killings, domestic violence and sexual abuse that women face in the society.

Even men did not shy away from participating in the rally and played their part to defy stereotypes and to seek an end to patriarchy.


However, while the movement left many inspired, the Aurat March also became a controversial topic of discussion on social media. Various influential personalities and a few men ridiculed the idea.

So much so, a group of defensive individuals have kickstarted an insensitive campaign called ‘Mard March’ as a response to Aurat March.

Similar to women carrying placards in the gathering, these men are posing with messages, majority of them being sexist in nature.
