Feminism is one of the global agendas, lately. Women’s participation in political, social and economic sectors is of great influence and importance. Certain stereotypical ideologies revolve like a hot air balloon almost in every part of the world whether it be north or south depending on the higher and lower scale intensity of its sensitivity. Female activists all around the world have initiated global feminist movements to promote awareness and increase women participation in different sectors throughout the world.

Pakistan has also marked its space in ‘World Feminist Movement’ through some great works and inspiring characters in this regard. For example, a young and motivated student Malala Yousafzai has promoted the concept of more convenient way of education for females in remote areas. Similarly, activism in Pakistan regarding female participation in politics is another feature being promoted by our female politicians by their remarkable work. Two most prominent political parties in this regard are PLM-N and PTI. Zartaj Gul Wazir from PTI and Maryam Nawaz from PLM-N are both influential and inspirational women.
“A wise woman wishes to be no one’s enemy; a wise woman refuses to be anyone’s victim.” said Maya Angelou. This statement of an American civil right activist inspires us to a great deal. Being the victim of societal constructed stereotypes is not what a wise woman should prefer. But rather it’s a stab in the heart of success. Something similar can be seen in the campaigns of upcoming elections. Female representors are going head to head in the competition with the rival political parties.
