In the rise of violence against women, activists in multiple cities in Pakistan unite to fight against the conservetive religious establishment for their right to organize Women’s marches. In an irrefutable style and point of view, Anam Abbas, the director and one of the organizers of the marches, shines a bright light on the dark alleys of what it means to be a woman in present day Karachi.
