The book aims to change the landscape of Pakistani society from its barren absence of women to one where women boldly dot the canvas. It is a book that proposes that we recognize that there is a systematic war on women. That there are too many weary arms that cannot hold the burdens of economics, social costs, health issues and the deprivation of education among other things. It serves to tell women of the region how similar our pains are and how interweaved our losses. To tell them that it's time to join hands and work together – fight by fight.
