Pakistan has a strong history of women standing for professions, which anyone around the world would think twice before doing. We are proud to be that one country who had the first female Prime Minister, first female high altitude mountaineer, Samina Baig. We have women serving in police, we have women running businesses, we have women in sports. To be very honest, it is not easy being a woman let alone being in the difficult professions.
Women who mind their business are acing at whatever they do and it now happening a little too frequently. These girls from Karachi United who are kickass athletes and play football were photographed with smiling faces. But on the photographer’s page where he posted the photo, people went bonkers over the very image of girls in SHORTS! Some people simply couldn’t register the idea of common girls wearing shorts in Pakistan. So they bashed them. People said VERY mean things to these girls in the comments. However, this not a new thing to many people, seeing girls being called names.
