note from my Professor "Rakshinda Perveen from Pakistan. This activist academic is a medical doctor, a university teacher, an Ashoka Fellow, an expert on gender-based violence and an advocate for women who have suffered abuse, the producer of the award-winning Pakistani TV series ‘Gender Watch’ that instituted a public discourse on gender issues among youth, and the first woman anchor for a live current affairs morning show from state-owned Pakistan Television Network. Such an inspiration. (Now, if only we could get her to stop "apologizing" for not being "an academic by training...")
