Every day we hear of heroes who bring accodates for their countries and communities. Today there is not just one but dozens of Pakistani women who have made their country proud of becoming part of BBC's 100 inspirational women of 2015. Aesha Farooq, Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, Maria Umar, Mashall Chaudhary, Shaheena Waqar, Farahnaz Zahidi, Salma Habib, Jehan Ara, Sabeen Mehmood and Muniba Mazari are among those.
A woman who overcame the restrictions and stereotypes of women from KPK, Maria has not only changed her own life but the life of hundreds of women by enabling them to work online. She is the brain behind the venture 'The Women's Digital League'. On other hand, Aeysha Ishtiaq, 17 and Muniba Mazari, 28 are two young women who have managed to find place among the exclusive club. One of the reason of Islamabad-based Aeysha's joining of 100 inspirational women is because despite being a student, she has made it her primary objective is to tackle two twin subjects of gender equality and sexism. Aeysha has also appeared in BBC's filmmakers strands "Good Girl" She aspires to study journalism or Women's Studies in United States in future and hopes to achieve a bigger audience as a result. Muniba is an artist and anchorperson by profession. After being unable to walk due to a car accident 7 years ago but she did not sit quit. Muniba has gone on to become Pakistan's first wheel chair bound model and subsequently she also served in Pakistan Television as an anchor. Her example is sure to spur other individuals in similar predicaments.
