Pretty shocking for PM Sharif to target women attending the PTI rally. Completely unnecessary.
This is a telling sign of his desperation.

Disgusted at PM's derogatory remarks abt PTI female supporters. This misogynist heads a country that has 51% women population! What a shame!

PM Sharif statement regarding women attending PTI rally is regrettable. Believe from now onwards PM should deliver only written speeches

Horrifying display of chauvinism & misogyny by PM. Just b/c women attend PTI's jalsas with dance & music does NOT mean you can shame them! https://t.co/oxeLIGTabx
