After a successful run in Punjab, the Women on Wheels campaign has landed in Karachi, with it's launch happening today on Sunday.
The programme - which empowers women by improving their access to mobility - provides subsidised motorbikes for women, as well as training and road safety lessons and networking opportunities.
And from the looks of it, it did pretty well!
Salman Sufi, who introduced the Punjab Protection of Women Against Violence Act 2016 and South Asia’s first Violence Against Women Centre, says he is launching the Karachi programme for WOW in a private capacity.
According to Sufi, the bulk of Pakistan’s female population heavily relies on either a male family member or a poor public transport infrastructure to get from one place to another. And as he's said, this should not be the case.
The event was a huge success
The performances were apt
With some heartwarming moments
And big news
Look at that turnout!
We just feel inspired
This is how to be an ally
Who run the world?
