LAHORE (8th Dec 2022): Pakistan’s first female Supreme Court judge, Justice Ayesha Malik, has had the honor of being included in BBC’s list of 100 Inspiring Women.
According to BBC, appointed as the first female judge earlier this year, Justice Malik worked to protect the rights of women. Her work includes the “landmark judgement which banned the so-called two-finger test of rape victims” performed to examine sexual assault cases until they were prohibited last year.
Apart from her work as an esteemed Supreme Court judge, Justice Ayesha Malik, also conducts training for female judges around the world, encouraging the inclusion of a “gender perspective” in the world of judiciary. The honorable judge believes, “Women must build a new narrative – one that includes their perspective, shares their experience, and includes their stories”.
Not only is she the only female Supreme Court judge in Pakistan, but she is also the sole Pakistani woman to be included in the 10th season of the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation)’s list of 100 inspiring women for making history in a male-dominated society.
Alongside Justice Malik, inspiring women included in the 2022 list are Ukraine’s First Lady Olena Zelenska, Bollywood diva Priyanka Chopra, Hollywood’s beloved Selma Blair, singer/songwriter Billie Eilish, Ghanian author Nana Darkoa Sekyiamah, Iranian climber Elnaz Rekbai, Palestinian Human rights campaigner Lina Abu Akleh, Syrian Runner Dima Aktaa, Afghan student Fatima Amiri, Disability Campaigner Heidi Crowter from UK, Climate Campaigner Kimiko Hirata and many others.
