Apart from the Aurat March that is scheduled to be held at Frere Hall, many events related to the International Women’s Day have been scheduled today.

International Women’s Day is celebrated all across the globe every year on March 8.

The main objectives of these events are to raise awareness about women’s rights in society.

Aurat March organisers have warned of extending their protest if the government fails to meet the demands listed in the 15-point agenda of the Aurat March within the given time frame.

In this regard, Sheema Kirmani, who is a renowned classical dancer and a member of the organising committee of the Aurat March, addressed a news conference at the Karachi Press Club on Friday.
