A theatre performance and Policy Dialogue on Stigmatization of Single Women and their Right to inherited property

An additional Policy Dialogue was held back to back with an Interactive Theatre Performance at Lahore College for Women’s University as part of the Sixteen Days of Activism on Violence Against Women and included a display of posters on forced marriage. This activity was part of advocacy and awareness raising component of the project.

The focus of both activities was on forced marriage and women’s inheritance rights. The venue enabled access to the faculty and student community of LCWU (one of the oldest women’s colleges in Lahore that has been given university status).

Women’s Right to Inheritance and against Forced Marriage

Date: 19 December 2011
Venue: Lahore College for Women University Lahore

Marginalized and Dispossessed 

A Supreme Court in 2011 decision by the Chief Justice of Pakistan, Chaudhry Mohammad Iftikhar acknowledged the rights of the khawaja sarra community as citizens of the state. This was an important step forward not only in Pakistan’s journey towards democracy but also towards ameliorating the life conditions of one of Pakistan’s most dispossessed and vulnerable communities. The Supreme Court decision has set the stage for change. Concrete steps will have to be taken before any real change can take place in the lives and life conditions of the khawaja sarra. Much work needs to be done in this regard foremost of which is to identify and understand the problems transgender communities face at multiple levels of their daily lives.
This dialogue is an outcome of our research on the status and conditions of Single Women and transgender communities in the Punjab.
