41 Of The Most Powerful Signs From The March Against The Motorway Incident

By Maryam Khalid | 13 Sep, 2020

Women all over the country gathered to express their outrage through these signs on the motorway incident.

Ever since the horrible motorway incident, Pakistani women are questioning the safety of the country they live in. Even the authorities are involved in insensitive victim-blaming, instead of providing justice. We are scared, we are angry and we want our public spaces to be safe. So, Aurat March called a nationwide protest to raise voice against rape culture and patriarchal violence.

Here we have picked up some of the most powerful posters that you absolutely have to see:
