No Country for Bold Women

“We, the undersigned, condemn the murder of Qandeel Baloch by her brother, Waseem, and demand that the government put the alleged killer on trial.

Her sensual social media videos cajoling, mocking and subtly lampooning male politicians, sports stars, and the clergy brilliantly exposed the hypocrisies of a patriarchal society dominated by a narrow-minded, self-righteous moral police.” Sign here.
