Every year on March 8, International Women’s Day, Pakistan hosts the Aurat March to promote gender equality and bring attention to issues impacting women. From the Aurat March’s beginning in 2018, it has been dogged with controversy.

Several conservative groups in society have denounced the march because they believe it goes against Pakistani culture and traditions. Some people have also objected to the marchers’ banners and posters, which they find insulting and disgusting. Some have said that certain slogans and placards from earlier Aurat Marches are unsuitable and disrespectful of Pakistani culture and values, which has caused controversy and debate.

Many claim that the decision to forbid the Aurat March from taking place in Lahore is an effort to silence women’s voices and prevent them from expressing their constitutional rights. The petitioner claims that the Constitution, which protects the right to free speech and assembly, is being violated by the prohibition on a nonviolent march. The petitioner further stresses the need of upholding women’s rights and providing them with a forum where they feel free to express their demands and experiences.
