This Weekend in Karachi: Book the Halls
This weekend in Karachi is all about big venues and lots of fun. Basant is back with a bang, other than that there’s a swing-dancing workshop, game night and the BCP and two different panel discussions. We’ve curated a fine selection; time to pick your poison.
Swing dancing is a true test of trust and stamina while keeping things light and fun. The basic steps will be taught in the first half of the night while the remainder will involve the group swing dancing with each other. But let’s not hog a partner, dance with each other into merriment, and start the first swing scene in Karachi.
P.S. The first 20 applicants bag a spot

Aurat Marches held around the country have thrown a large section of our society into panic mode. In a society plagued with gender-based violence, why is it that feminist movements face such a backlash? Are such movements seen as threats to patriarchy and masculine control? Join the discourse.
