International women day is being celebrated worldwide, where countries acknowledge great efforts made by their women in different fields despite them facing diverse challenges such as pay gap, gender bias, stereotypes, and norms. These women have not just carved a benchmark for themselves but also set a bar for other women around them to follow. From women in the army, aviation, politicians, doctors, and teachers, basically from all walks of life, we see you, recognise your efforts, and appreciate you for your work and dedication.
Here’s the Jaw-Dropping Google Doodle for International Women’s Day
On this day, all men and women come together to fight for women’s equal rights that have been taken away from us centries ago; the right to be educated, the right to earn a fair and equal wage, the right to live a free life from slavery and violence, the right to expression, the right to vote.
In a patriarchal society such as Pakistan, many of these rights are often disregarded and shunned to silence women and for men to rule and take control. Regardless of all odds, Pakistani women have fought for themselves, for their rights, for their presence in authoritative fields to win back their place in society and to be able to play roles they are truly capable of.

Aurat March 2021: A Significant Movement in Pakistan
In Pakistan, Aurat March has become a significant movement where men and women march in major cities of the country to demand rights for women. Aurat March is trending on Twitter as the public is out right now on the roads in Karachi and Lahore. The capital city, however, revoked the march. Right now, women are outside the National press club demanding the right to protest.
Here is a 15 point agenda for this year. These demands are there to hope for and build a more equal, inclusive, and just world!
