Mahjabeen Shereen, a member of the Balochistan Assembly, has pledged a campaign to amend laws barring women lawmakers from bringing their infants to sessions.
On Saturday, the MPA was strongly criticised by fellow lawmakers for bringing her child to the assembly session. One of the MPAs went on to ask her to leave the house, bringing tears to her eyes. In an interview with BBC Urdu, she said that on Saturday her child was not feeling well and so she had no option but to take him along. “My child was not causing any disturbance but still they asked me to leave. For a working woman to focus on her work, it is essential that she has her child with her,” she said.
