WOMEN OF PAKISTAN- Strong women build strong nations!

 By Eman Zameer Rahman:

No nation can ever be worthy of its existence that cannot take its women along with the men. No struggle can ever succeed without women participating side by side with men. There are two powers in the World, one is the Sword and the other is the Pen. There is a great competition and rivalry between the two. There is a third power stronger than both, that of the women.” Mohammad Ali Jinnah
