Girls of the wild frontier

 The Big Issue in the North - UK 23 January 2019

Maryam Bibi has dedicated herself to improving the lives of women and girls in the fiercely conservative frontier provinces of Pakistan.

For her bravery and commitment she’s been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize – and now received a doctorate from York University. (1224 Words) - By Alasdair Soussi
