Bushra Gohar interview with the Forum of Federations
Women and Federalism Initiative Launch Speaker Series
The Forum of Federations is honoured to announce the release of the first interview in its Women in Federalism, Speaker Series. This first interview is with the Hon. Bushra Gohar, a Pakistani stateswoman, public intellectual and one of Pakistan's leading politicians. She is currently serving as the Senior Vice-President of the Awami National Party, a democratic socialist and secular political party, as well as Chairman of the Standing Committee on Women's Development and a senior member on Standing Committee on Foreign, Finance, and Kashmir Affairs.
We hope that her story will encourage and inspire others to "roll up their sleeves and get involved" in politics and that her story will serve as an example of the important role of women in governance and illustrate examples of how to achieve greater participation for women within government and other institutions.
