KARACHI: The Aurat March 2020 — amid all the fuss that erupted before the actual event — has got people thinking about the society and  some posters made by male allies will get you thinking about the cause and demands of the rally.

Not only have the men stepped up, they were also urging fellow men to use their privilege to make the society better. Here are some of the posters that caught our attention!
