A new book focuses on women’s cause

A new book focuses on women’s cause

Dr. Rakhshinda Parveen’s latest piece of work in the form of book titled ‘Pakistan I Still Love You’ is a moving and inspiring piece wherein she advocates provision of relief in taxes for the disabled women and the divorced mothers. If you want to make the world of the disabled women and the divorced mothers better, this book can help.

She starts a clear, spirited and detailed discussion of the way such women are treated by our society and legal system. Written with varied experiences in activism for social change, this book deepens reader’s perspective on this important issue. This book gives the knowledge, tools, and confidence to make a real impact -- to step out into the world and be an activist, advocate, and ally of such women.

Dr. Rakhshinda has been a courageous and tireless advocate for women, insisting on discussing the difficult issues that impact their lives.

‘Pakistan I Still Love You’ is a book for you if you are ready to make a real difference. It offers quick dive into a range of topics, from the rights of the deprived and under-privileged to the campaign against evil of dowry and Bihari Pakistanis’ plight. Each topic includes informative data, as well as practical suggestions for what one can do to make a difference in the community.

She has turned a feminist cause into a revolution. Being a defender of the rights of the deprived and under-privileged and initiator of campaign against evil of dowry, she got engaged with the swirl of change sweeping through the cities of Pakistan and has successfully tried to restore these women to their rightful place in the society.

Understanding the need for popular approval for any social change, she has used her time, social connections and writing skill to stimulate interest and to fight opposition to the cause. When change was in the air, Dr. Rakhshinda helped push these women’s rights over the finish line.

Being a well-known advocate for women’s rights she chides the human rights organisations for ignoring the needs of the disabled women and divorced mothers and deftly holds up a mirror up to them.
