Taken from Lala Rukh's photo archive, The Friday Times published this picture on the 25th anniversary of the Women's Action Forum, taken at WAF's national convention in Lahore in October, 1982.
What began as spontaneous reactions to Gen Zia ul-Haq's anti-women laws developed into life-long struggles for equality, education and health. Between them, these women have either founded or worrked for Simorgh, Shirkat Gah, ASR, Aurat Foundation, SAHE, Lahore Grammar School and the National College of Arts.
