Dr. Saeeda Malik Day


The Sindh Government must be congratulated for its unique creativity and astuteness.  While the rest of the world  wasted time, money and speeches on celebrating International Women’s day, the Sindh Government instead decided to celebrate Dr. Saeeda Malik day on 8th March 2007.

The day began with a 2 page  Dr.Saeeda Malik supplement in all major newspapers of the province. This  tax payer funded initiative displayed six large coloured photographs  of the lady minister, including a message describing the glorious  strides in liberty freedom and equality that  women in the Sindh province  have achieved in the past few years.  Words like legal empowerment, socio-economic empowerment, political empowerment and capacity building  were used with extravagance to describe their unique accomplishments.   Oblivious of these high sounding words and achievements,  Naseema Lebano, Kainat Soomro and Mukhtaran Mai stand  in a silent vigil outside the Press Club.  They only seek  dignity and justice.  They understand that the  2 page newspaper supplement, studded with ministerial portraits, may promote  private marketing but not  the cause of women.
