A Landmark Women's Rights Bill Could Decide Pakistan's Future Foreign Policy
The legislative assembly of Punjab, Pakistan’s most populous province, on Feb. 24 passed violence against women legislation that included unprecedented protections for women and penalties for perpetrators. Similar legislation to the Protection of Women Against Violence Act 2016, or Women’s Protection Act (WPA), was adopted by the Sindh and Balochistan provincial assemblies in 2013 and 2014 respectively.

And if the Punjab government’s recent policymaking is anything to go by, it might be able to overcome the final hurdle towards veritable empowerment for women.

Richard Leakey, one of Kenya’s leading conservationists and the subject of an upcoming film starring Brad Pitt and directed by Angelina Jolie, said he was “humbled, sad and encouraged.”
“We shouldn’t have to burn 105 tons of ivory and 1.5 tons of rhino horn,” said. “It is a disgraceful shame this continues.”
