While the Aurat March in Pakistan aims to fight for women’s rights, the author, Rimsha Zia, questions if it is really the best course of action to take. She argues that due to the way the march has been conducted, along with the patriarchal, misogynistic and extremist attitudes in Pakistan’s society, it is impossible for the march to achieve its purpose. She also explains that the problem with Pakistan is not that it gives women no rights, but rather the lack of implementation to ensure these rights.
Rimsha Zia has a degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore. She has a keen interest in social and political issues. She is an opinionated person and a strong advocate of women's empowerment and gender equality.
