Conference on ’empowering women’ at Karachi Press Club on January 24

Shehrbano Saiyid, an independent documentary film-maker & amateur mountain climber, will address a press conference on “empowering women to reach new heights” at the Karachi Press Club here on January 24.

Members of Pakistan Women’s Expedition (PWE) – organised and led by Shehrbano Saiyid, an independent documentary film-maker from Karachi added a new chapter to the history of Pakistan’s mountaineering recently when PWE managed to summit three 6,000m peaks (close to 20,000ft) back to back within six days – a record not only for women but for all non-professional Pakistani climbers and trekkers. The entire trip was done under windy conditions when temperature dipped to -20°C.

The three summit expedition was arranged in collaboration with the Shimshall Mountaineering School – a mountain climbing training school established by a team of professional mountain guides and high altitude porters from the Shimshall valley.

Shehrbano Saiyid along with six Shimshalli women included in the expedition and students of the same school will also address the press conference. Short clips of the documentary and pictorial overview of this expedition will also be screened on the occasion. The purpose of the press conference is to give recognition to the unparalleled achievements of Pakistan Women’s Expedition in Pakistani high altitude mountaineering and to promote tourism and the cause of women in Pakistan.
