Dr Peters will talk about the experience of women in Pakistan, focusing
on the work of Perveen Shakira; “a poet by talent, a bureaucrat by
profession, a loving parent by nature, a scholar with three Masters
Degrees, a columnist on print media, an anchor person on electronic
media and a patriot to the core. She died young in a road accident at the
prime of her life, of her career, her profession and her beauty.”
