On International Women’s Day 2019 (#IWD2019) Dr. Amber Darr picks five must-read books for those seeking a deeper understanding of the lives of women of Pakistan. Amber’s list intends to serve a three-fold purpose: it aims firstly to cast its net wide to include women from very diverse strata of the Pakistani society, next it highlights challenges faced by women in spheres ranging from the social, to the economic and political, and finally, it showcases and celebrates the authors of these books, all of whom are Pakistani women who have raised strong, unmistakeable voices in a context that often conspires to silence them.
