March is here and International Women’s Day is just around the corner. If you’re privileged enough to be reading this article from the comfort of your own home, consider it our collective moral obligation to speak up for the under-represented fellow women of our community. One way we can do that is by marching in solidarity, carrying eye-catching and thought provoking slogans and placards. If your creative gears are a bit rusty, don’t worry. You came to the right place! Here are 5 Kickass Slogans for Women’s Day!
Taarnay per tax hota tou mulk default na karta
Much in line with the economic state of the country, this quirky slogan highlights how women find it almost impossible to step out of the house without having hundreds of pairs of eyes following them and making them uncomfortable. Seriously, lets reclaim public spaces and maybe shift our gaze towards the more pressing problems that the country is facing instead of passing comments on the way women are dressed.
Khana garam kar deti hoon, diaper tum badal dou
Pakistan has amongst the highest number of unpaid domestic workers. Apart from domestic, household chores, women are solely responsible for childcare and tarbiyat. It’s time for men to step up and play an equal role in bringing up their children together, as a unit.
What can be more fundamental than to have the right and access to breathe in clean air? Pakistan’s AQI has been worsening each year with little to no concern shown by the government to address the issue. It’s high time we woke up and demanded the right to clean air.
I’m a feminist, not a terrorist
The word feminist has been unnecessarily villainized when it simply means a person who believes both genders deserve treatment and opportunities in every aspect of life. So let us join hands and declare that we’re proud feminists. Lets not shy away from demanding what’s rightfully ours. Trust us, it’ll only make us more attractive. And we should actually mean it – pseudo feminism does more bad than good to the cause.
For Haqs sake
The best way to conclude these slogans – Haq. After all, that’s what every human being in the world is after – fundamental, human rights. The right to education, the right to freedom of movement, freedom of speech. To be able to chase their dreams. To feel safe and protected. To be valued as an equal. To get equal access to healthcare, education and opportunities. That’s what we all are after. That’s what we all must fight for.
We, at Generation are a largely women run organisation and are focused on inspiring and empowering our audience with diverse storytelling experiences and points of view through thought provoking and challenging campaigns each season. For example, our previous campaign, “Consent”, focused on the nikahnama and the importance around its understanding – something that is deliberately kept from women in order to exploit them later on. We aim to continue bringing these issues to light for the betterment of Pakistani women.
