Feminism in Pakistan and Emerging Perspectives
Keywords:Feminism, Pakistan, feminism trends, feminism modes
Since March 2019, local NGOs in Pakistan are organizing “Aurat March” (Women March) in month of March to raise voice against indigenous feminine issues and violence against women. In hindu-originated society like Pakistan, where Islamic women rights haven’t implemented in its true spirit yet, digesting such a “liberal” act is not easily digestible. Thus different intellectual classes took social media on fire to outdo each other and central topic of cross arguments was slogans raised in the March. Raising slogans is a traditional way of weaker class in society to demonstrate against discrimination and emit emotional suffocation. To study underlying meanings of much debated slogans of Aurat March in Pakistan, discourse analysis is employed which also facilitated to indicate emerging dimension socio-religious debates and opinions towards feminism in Pakistan.
