THE HARASSMENT AND THE VIOLENCE AGAINST THE FEMALE JOURNALISTS OF PAKISTAN
With Begum Zeb-un-Nisa Hamidullah the field of Journalism opened its gate to women. Her first column appeared in newspaper in the year 1948. Since then many women have joined the field of journalism. It has always been considered to be a very prestigious profession. People like Shaista Zaid have paved way for today’s young generation. Sadly, though the current situation is not as optimistic as we believe it to be. Women are abused of and on in the field. Men harass them off and on. Women are objectified on the basis of their gender. They are starred at and called names. Men whistle if a woman passes by and even in some recent cases women reporters have been slapped by males while trying to do their duty.
