Many people celebrated International Women’s Day on March 8th by attending Aurat March 2020. These include many celebrities, who not only attended the march, but also showed their support on social media.
The Bol star had previously tweeted that she wanted to march for the women who couldn’t, and march she did! She tweeted a picture with a group of people holding posters that highlighted the Aurat March manifesto.
Nasreen is the sole bread winner of her home and works at my place. Mubarak works for Mashion, supports a family who live in a village in Sindh. Both came along with me. All the posters we made were picked up from the #auratmarch manifesto. #HappyWomensDay ♥️ pic.twitter.com/yzm30V76uO

Marching so that we create safe spaces for women on and offline!…marching so that we recognize that women have the right to education, to work & be financially independent. Marching because women are harassed, raped & killed in the name of honor & we dont want to talk about these issues…marching for Quaid e Azam’s vision of equality for the women of #Pakistan

I march because it’s the most obvious thing to do. I march because it’s the most radical thing to do. I march because I want to. I march because they don’t want me to. I march for solidarity, strategy, strength. I march to get some sun. I march because my mother marched. I march for the women who can’t march. I march coz I FREAKIN LOVE BEING IN A SEA OF WOMEN SUPERCHARGED WITH ENERGY, HUMOR, AND AN EXCELLENT VOLTAGE OF ANGER. Happy Women’s Day, brothers and sisters ⚡️⚡️⚡️ #auratmarch2020 #karachi
The lawyer and activist attended the Aurat March 2020 in Lahore and took a picture with the women police officers who were guarding the march. More power to women!
Aurat March 2020 was considered a success across all over Pakistan and showed that the nation is ready to fight patriarchy head on. Celebrities are using their power to raise their voices for women rights and I am delighted that we are moving towards a better Pakistan!
