Women's Movements in Pakistan

Fouzia Saeed

This book is an engaging introduction to the inner dynamics of women's social movements in Pakistan. Pakistani women are often viewed as merely passive victims of heinous crimes. In this book, Dr Saeed shows how they can collectively assert their will to bring change in their own lives, and in the lives of others. The book provides details of four successful women's movements since 2000: the provincial movements of the Punjab peasants and the Sindh ?sherfolk, and the nationwide movements of the lady health workers and AASHA, the movement against sexual harassment.
