Two Pakistani girls namely Ayesha Ishtiaq, 17 and Muniba Mazari, 18, have made their way to the BBC’S 100 Inspirational Women 2015 list. There is always an odd one out among us; the ones who make their family or the country proud, the ones who are an inspiration to us.
School Student Who Runs Campaigns For Women Rights
Islamabad-based Ayesha Ishtiaq, 17, made its way to BBC’s 100 Inspirational women 2015. Ayesha Ishtiaq, despite being a student is galvanized by the idea to protect the rights of women.
Her prime objective is to talk freely about gender inequalities and sexism in the society she is living in. Ayesha through her campaigns and discussion highlights the feminist and human rights issues of Pakistani society.
Ayesha also appeared in BBC’s filmmakers strand ‘Good Girl.’ She aims to study Journalism or Women Studies as her majors in the United States in her future.
Ayesha is motivated towards her aspirations. She instead of living in the male-dominated society is relentlessly working for the rights of women and she believes that other women should also speak out for their own rights.
A Wheelchair Bound Model and TV Anchor
Muniba by profession is the first wheelchair-bound anchor-woman, model, and an artist. She has also served her time in Pakistani Television as an anchor.
Seven years ago, Muniba Mazari endured a car accident that made her paralyzed. Muniba even after facing such arduous situation never called it quits.
The anchor quotes, “I looked at my condition as an opportunity. I wanted a hero in my life, but I could not find one. So I decided to become one,”
It surely brings us a smile when we see such people in our society who enlighten us that everything is possible even in your difficult times.
