After years of struggles and hard work, we are finally on the right path when it comes to giving transgender people their rights. Nothing makes me more proud than when I read the small but significant changes the country has brought on all platforms. Just recently, at the UN Session Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) in Geneva, Switzerland, Pakistan became the first country in the world to include a legally recognized transgender woman in its National Delegation. And what a moment it was to see the Pakistani delegation on stage and watch Aisha Mughal, the transgender rights expert conducting the discussion in the committee.
Aisha Mughal is a Transgender Rights Experts and Focal Person at the Ministry of Human Rights. She has been zealously working for the rights of the transgender community in Pakistan. Aisha has an M.Phil. Degree in Human Resource Management from COMSATS Islamabad and is also the first transgender lecturer in the visiting faculty at Quaid-e-Azam University. Her accomplishments have been recognized by the government and even though there is still a long way for her to go, she is determined to continue. We are proud of her and wish her all the best for the future.
