Chalenging prevalent stereotypes, [this document] reveals the uniqueness of each person and diversity in the llie experiences of Pakistani Muslim women, including their world views and the struggles to change their society. Through their struggles, professional Pakistani women have become conscious of their own and other women's situations in their country.

On a broader level, it examines Western misconceptions regarding Islam, a religion that crosses many borders and cultures."
