Women across the country came out on Sunday (March 8) to mark International Women’s Day by joining the Aurat March.

The march was held in Karachi, Lahore, Quetta and Islamabad.

Here are some of the highlights from the event:



Women in Quetta marched against honour killings, acid attacks, denying women education and harassment, among other issues.

Men also participated in the march and said they will work towards ensuring women get their rights.


In Karachi, the march at Frere Hall was guarded by policemen in riot gear.

They checked the CNICs of participants, both male and female, and didn’t allow men to enter without a female companion.

Many women from Hyderabad have come to Karachi for the march.

Politicians such as Ghinwa Bhutto and Law Adviser Murtaza Wahab are also at the march.
