It takes a lot of courage for women in Pakistan to break free from societal chains and do something that’s different from the stereotypical roles dictated by society. Women in Sports have always found it a challenge to overcome these hurdles. We are so proud of all of our Sports women who continue to let their passion shine by doing their best despite of the lack of resources and encouragement from the masses.
