Create & Spread - awareness among the community at public place

International Women’s day is celebrated on 8th march. In the context of IWD the Aurat Foundation and the group of interns from Gender Studies Department, PU has planned activity. The theme of the activity was to “Create & Spread “awareness among the community at public place. They chose the social issues of our society, like Early & Forced marriage, a campaign against Dowry, Violence against women and right to inheritance. The students have made the paly cards with different slogans and strong messages to illuminate those issues. The process of the activity was to engage the passengers and the management. We focused women, and also talked to men because we could not bring the change in society until we change mindset of men in our society.  We met with people from Islamabad, Karachi, Hyderabad, Lahore, Sahiwal and Multan. The women were keen to know about their rights and condemn the violation of their fundamental rights. To get our rights we should focus on girl’s education, through education we can break the stereotypes and patriarchy from our society. The objective of this activity was to aware the diverse group and make a chain of change. The students took the commitment from them, they will aware the five more women.
