Benazir Bhutto – the woman needs no introduction. Hailing from one of Pakistani’s most prominent political families, Benazir was the first woman to head a democratic government in a Muslim majority nation. In her long-spanning politcial career, she chaired or co-chaired the centre-left Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) from the early 1980s until her tragic assassination on December 27th, 2007. Whether you agree with her politics or not, there is one thing you can’t take away from Benazir. The fact that she was able to govern an otherwise patriarchal country was an achievement in itself. One that required immense courage and determination. So 11 years after her demise, that’s how we’d like to remember her – as the strong, courageous, determined woman she was. If we haven’t convinced you yet, read through her inspiring quotes!
