One British Pakistani woman's mission to inspire others through her art
By Barfi Culture Team
2nd March 2019

23 year-old Maliha Abidi, based in Britain, has created something extraordinary herself:

A book called 'Pakistan For Women: Stories of women who achieved something extraordinary'.

The book features wonderful drawings of 50 of Pakistan's biggest female icons.

She says: "Sometimes girls are discouraged to follow their dreams because their parents or they themselves think that since we are from Pakistan, we belong to a country with not many resources and that’s why we can’t achieve our dreams."

So she set out to inspire girls with stories of other Pakistani women. ✊
