The inflammatory phrase sprayed with an anarcha-feminism symbol on a wall read: “All men are jerks.”

While it’s a fact that women rights in Pakistan have not yet been addressed properly, this particular graffiti may have crossed some lines, as some female rights advocate would point out.

One phrase read: “Only women can liberate this world.”

Anarcha-feminists believe that the struggle against patriarchy is an essential part of class conflict and the anarchist struggle against the state and capitalism.  It is described to be an anti-authoritarian, anti-capitalist, anti-oppressive philosophy, with the goal of creating an “equal ground” between all genders.
