Extremism threat to women, says WAF

HYDERABAD: President of the Hyderabad chapter of Women Action Forum (WAF) Ms Amar Sindhu has said that religious extremism poses a serious challenge to women’s movement in the country.

Addressing a function organised by the WAF in honour of women who have been fighting violence against women, she condemned the elements who accused women of spreading obscenity.

She said that the women’s movement also faced problems from some funding organisations which offered help at the initial stage, but later focused on micro-financing.

Rozina Junejo said the WAF was struggling not only to improve the socio-economic condition of women, but was also trying to rid the society of inequality, injustice, tyranny, oppression and exploitation.

She said that the forum would support all movements which were working to bring about a social revolution at regional, national and international levels.

Irfana Mallah said that leaders of the forum would contact members of the Sindh assembly to persuade them to enact laws against jirgas.
