Dr. Amna Mirza is one of the most talented and versatile woman educationists we have met. Author of the book “A Comprehensive Perspective of Federal Concerns in Global Times“, she is someone who goes beyond her work, to make the world a better place for women.
Dr. Amna, has been a academically brilliant student throughout her life. Today, she is an accomplished assistant professor at DU, an author of a book, a columnist with The Sunday Guardian and a guide/mentor to many students.

Managing all these roles, along with being a politicians wife, cannot be easy. Amna talks about how giving women equal opportunities is crucial for any society.
We asked Dr. Amna about the rise of discrimination against muslim women; a prevailing issue in the society. Watch her video and get inspired by her thought provoking opinions.

A woman, because of her appearance, is monitored and moralised.
Women like Dr Amna, encourage other women to build their opinions, and stand by them. Truly a Feministaa, she has gone beyond her career to make a difference.
