Today we celebrate the services, and contributions of our women that they are making for the development of Pakistan. Their struggles & stories are a source of inspiration.

Every step makes a difference when you believe in something strongly and do your bit. It might not show immediately but the results do create a ripple and an impact. To all the women fighting for what they believe in, don't give up !! Happy #WomensDay 💖✨🌸— Anushka Sharma (@AnushkaSharma) March 8, 2018
Power to all the women who have come through times of adversity and become a symbol of hope and fervor for others.
