Project Description

In March 2017 we visited Lahore, Pakistan to give lectures and workshops about harassment in the workplace. Together with professionals, students and high school girls we created a project to show Pakistan that the (submissive) position of girls and women in Pakistan has to change. This project started with a promise to these girls, because it’s so hard in Pakistan to make this subject negotiable because of the possible reprisals. We will show so much strength by marching through the streets of Lahore on International Women’s Day 2018, this will be a breakthrough with beneficial effects for not only Pakistani women but every Pakistani. Gender equality is essential for a healthy workplace and economy, and we have to achieve this as soon as possible. In Pakistan 56% of the population is female so they have this benefit of numbers and therefore need to join forces to battle the traditional / conservative opinions. This has to start early with sexual education and education about equal rights. The funding is needed for the production of promotional material, marketing, and especially for security costs since this subject has an enormous taboo on it. Because we’ve spoken with so many people in Lahore about this subject and the fact that both women and men made it so clear that change and spreading this anti-harassment message is essential, we simply have to achieve this goal on International Women’s Day, the 8th of March 2018.

The Project FAQs

Are there risks involved? Absolutely, 95% of the people will support our project but for instance (religious) extremists don’t. This is why we need high security.

What is your main challenge? First of all starting the discussion, on the street, in homes, but especially in the business world and politics. Secondly giving women (in Pakistan) the deserved positive boost that they matter, that they have a right for a safe work environment. In school, universities and at the office.
Finally sexual education and education about equal rights is fundamental for the follow-up of this project and its success.
