Misogyny normalized by media through sexist content

Sexist slurs, jokes are a norm in Pakistan. This is not limited to Khawaja Asif’s remarks against Shireen Mazari or Aamir Liaquat’s suggestive captions. Even women’s team isn’t celebrated as much as their male counterparts. It’s our national behaviour.

To mark National Women’s Day on February 12, Uks, a gender equality resource centre, launched a campaign to create awareness against sexist jokes, humour, dialogue and language at all forums.
