The Peace Foundation, a non-governmental organisation in Pakistan, organised a gathering with friends of the organisation to mark SheDecides Day, welcoming several women groups and a total of 190 participants! The event featured a performance by a local folk singer and drummer, along with discussions around some of the issues facing girls and women in Sindh, Pakistan, including lack of resources and the increasing numbers of unsafe abortions in the region. Plus, participants in the event even cooked a SheDecides cake which you can see in the slideshow above, and you can check out a video from the event here.
