Where is Benazir Bhutto?
Thank you for this question. We have great respect for the unique and brave role played by Benazir Bhutto in Pakistan’s politics and society, indeed she was, and is, an inspiration to many of us. In this project, however, it is important for us to acknowledge and recognize the seriousness of the impact on women’s lives of having or not having varying degrees of privilege. This is an attempt to create a dynamic platform for women and voices who were not sustained by elite privileges, to celebrate women whose roles and contributions may not be celebrated as much as the women from Pakistan’s ruling families such as Begum Fatima Jinnah, Begum Rana Liaqat Ali Khan, Begum Nusrat Bhutto, and of course, BB.

About the Logo

The logo depicts a self-empowered woman with the sun at her back signifying both the support of her communities and the essential benefits of her actions to the society.

What does the banner image mean?

The first banner image uses Green for Pakistan (and for environment protection) while the White sun points to the centrality of the well-being of Pakistan’s vulnerable populations such as the religious and ethnic minorities, missing and murdered Balochi men, working women, children, lesbians and gays, bi-sexual, trans, queer, disabled people, and those suffering prolonged poverty due to caste and class. Right now, as you can see, the two colors are dim and the surfaces uneven.
