  1. Why do you have to start all such achievements of Muslim women with such taunts like “defying all traditional barriers”?
    There are no traditions barring girls from education. Opportunities/resources etc could be problem but for most part of pakistan, wherever there is a school, there aren’t any unwilling parents who don’t want to send children of either gender to school as long as they can afford it.
