The Feminist Collective and the Khawaja sira Society have drafted the Transgender Rights Protection Bill, 2017 to pursue the legal conversation against gender disparity with the lawmakers.
The proposed draft was presented before the task-force created on the matter under the Federal Ombudsman of Pakistan, on 3rd and 4th July, 2017. The Feminist Collective announced on social media that the members of the task-force approved all the recommendations of the drafting committee and presented the Bill before Senate on 7th July, 2017.
We hope the Transgender Rights Protection Bill, 2017 becomes law, however, the struggle against discrimination does not end here. The biggest battle is to change social mindset.
The struggle continues…
In love and solidarity,
