Women, transgender and non-binary persons stepped out to march for their rights on International Women’s Day over the weekend.

In Karachi, celebrities including two time Oscar winner Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, actors Mahira Khan, Mira Sethi and Adnan Malik joined them at Frere Hall on Sunday.

In an Instagram post, Obaid-Chinoy said that she was marching for safe spaces for women on and offline.

Humsafar star Mahira Khan tweeted the story of Nasreen, the sole bread winner of her family. Her friend and Sadqe Tumharay co-star Adnan Malik also tweeted from the march.

Actor Mira Sethi said that she was marching because it was the most radical thing to do.

Ehd-e-Wafa star Osman Khalid Butt posted two photographs on Instagram and said: “This International Women’s Day, and the day of the nationwide Aurat March, I have contributed to support the education of ten underprivileged girls for a year.”
