Maria recognizes education as a key factor in the empowerment of women in Pakistan. She also recognizes, however, that educational institutions may be a source of oppression for women as well. Incidences of sexual harassment often go unreported or aren’t taken seriously, largely because many don’t know about the Protection against Harassment of Women in the Workplace Act – or their rights under it.
