Lots of Pakistani women are getting recognition and acclamation for their work at international level. This shows women empowerment is gradually increasing in Pakistan. This year again two Pakistani women have made place in the BBC List of 100 Inspirational and Innovative Women for 2017.
The latest ones who got fame with the BBC List of Powerful Women are singing sensation Momina Mustheshen and a Muslim aspiring model Resham Khan.
According to the recent release of a list of BBC, both have earned place because of being inspirational and source of motivation for most of the women.
Commenting on her name in the BBC 100 Women 2017 List, Momina Mustehsan commented, “The quote that helped me the most with my life was: It only gets better when you get better. Would you believe I found this on the inside of a New York takeaway fortune cookie when I was binge-eating my way through depression? That woke me up.”
