The club recently observed the International Women’s day with great enthusiasm while calling for a gender-inclusive world. The programs shed light on the theme of the day — “Be Bold for Change.” The PWC ladies’ chapter is a group of creative women, who are well known for community services. Speaking at the event, Ambreen Faiz Ahmad said that women are the backbone of any society and their role cannot be ignored. Asma Tariq said: “The International Women’s Day reminds us that it is very important and an honor to be a woman.” She added: “It is a duty of every parent to teach their boys that they have come to this world because of a woman, and as such, they should always respect them.” “Parents should also instill in them the teachings of our Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), who bestowed upon the women the honor and respect that they deserved,” Tariq said. Dr. Farah Nadia said that a woman has strong willpower and she derives strength from times of tribulation. In her remarks, Farah Ehsan said that it was not right to paint women as weak and oppressed. “We should know that Fatima Jinnah was a woman who fought with her brother and gifted us an independent country.
