Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy gets women power players together


An elegant evening soiree, hosted by Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy at her beautiful Karachi residence, welcomed Catherine King – Head of Advocacy and Executive Producer at Global Fund for Women – to Pakistan. Sharmeen is currently working with the Global Fund for Women on a very interesting project, details of which we will be able to reveal to you soon.

The evening, however, was an idyllic getaway from the madness of the city and an opportunity for some very productive networking. The guest list for the evening was an eclectic mix of women from a cross section of society, with the one thing in common being ‘high achievement’. Shazia Syed – Chairperson Unilever, Seema Taher – co-founder Interflow and CEO  Airwaves Media, Zahra Saifullah – Publisher Hello and Grazia Pakistan, Ameena Saiyid of Oxford University Press, Kiran Aman of Markings Publishings, Senator Nasreen Jalil, Sameera Raja, designers Sonya Battla and Maheen Karim and amongst others were three actors who inspire woman’s rights – Sanam Saeed, Aamina Sheikh and Sarwat Gilani.

Some moments from the evening, before we bring you the story behind it…
