With the connotation of Patriarchal values, family/ tribal customs and religious fundamentalism, Gender based violence in Pakistan is one of the potential threats that not only creates gender based imparities, but also hinder women’s progression towards the socio-economic attainment. Fighting against discrimination, Peoples Common Struggle Center (PCSC) project ‘Pollinating the Power Against Gender Based Violence (GBV)’ is a step towards building women rights movement through the sensitization of young high school and college girls students, who would play their active role in amplifying their voices against gender based discrimination through the social media campaign called “Personal is Political.”
