PINK MOTORCYCLES RALLY IN PAKISTAN

PINK MOTORCYCLES RALLY IN PAKISTAN. Women ride pink motorcycles during the Pink Motorcycles Rally in Lahore, Pakistan, on May 15, 2018. Perched proudly on their brand new pink motorcycles, the women take to the road, the latest batch of women to demolish boundaries set for them by men in Pakistan. The government of Punjab province is running a "Women on Wheels" campaign that has trained scores of women to ride motorbikes in the last two years while raising awareness of gender-based violence and street harassment. The importance of the issue is underscored by recent studies showing that some 75 per cent of Pakistani women do not participate in the labour market, mainly due to a lack of transport.
