Abia Akram: Empowering other disabled women


Sometime back we had a post on Abia Akram here  as a disabled woman campaigner but she is recently featured on the Express Tribune

Akram has become the first ever Pakistani woman with disability to be nominated as the Coordinator for Commonwealth Young Disabled People’s Forum and Global Coordinator at Global Network of Emerging Women Leader, Disabled People’s International.

Abia is pursuing her Masters in Gender Policy at University of Warwick in Coventry on the British Chevening scholarship at the moment.

Congratulations, Abia! from all of us here at Sisters of Frida.
