World Policy On Air is a podcast from the pages and website of World Policy Journal.
Increased urbanization and the spread of social media have facilitated unprecedented political awareness and workforce participation among Pakistani women, but these shifts have been accompanied by growing acceptance of polygamy and a recent rise in honor killings like that of web star Qandeel Baloch. On this week’s episode of World Policy On Air, activist and author Rafia Zakaria considers the complex and contradictory role of women in the country’s divisive history.
