The #MeToo movement has amplified women’s voices and catalyzed others to come forward with harrowing stories of abuse, coercion, and harassment in Pakistan. The movement has put increasing pressure on men in power to acknowledge the obstacles women face in society. At the same time, the movement is equally concerned for young men facing possible false allegations as for young women facing sexual assault. The session explores the various roadblocks to justice and how to overcome them.

Where are you heading this weekend in Karachi?

Purnea depends on a steady supply of positive affirmations and berry flavored tea in order to continue functioning as an upstanding member of society. An amateur dance-battle enthusiast, she's a woman of many talents, overshadowed only by her mysterious aura. When she's not busy over-analyzing every social interaction she's had over the past 22 years she enjoys curating memes and scrapping sub-par content.
