These posters from this year's Aurat March warmed our cold feminist hearts
Happy Women's Day, everyone!
Updated 08 Mar, 2022
Every year the Aurat March is held on March 8 (International Women's Day) and every year there are a whole lot of people on the internet who get angry over posters at the march. There's something about women talking about their issues and them demanding their rights that gets to people online.
This year, we've rounded up some of our favourite posters from the march in Karachi. Here's what people marched for this year.
For the right to occupy public spaces
Against people trying to control women
For Baloch women
For a stop to hate
For mothers who have lost their sons
Because women should support each other
Because they weren't allowed to
Because why not?
For the right to dress and live as they please
Because people are scared of the Aurat March
For their right to be free
Because sexist jokes aren't funny
Because of society
Because people actually think like this
Because they can
Happy Women's Day everyone but especially to the brave women who went to the Aurat Marches across the country today.
