- Farheen, a woman living in Lahore in Pakistan, has shared how she overcomes patriarchy in her society on a daily basis
- To be able to earn her living, the woman always dresses in male clothing so she does not suffer abuse
- After social media users read her story, they were able to raise a good sum for her to improve her living conditions
Women are always in an unfair struggle with patriarchy, a system that always unjustifiably demands that they conform to some set rules built on the selfish interests of men.
A woman, Farheen, in Pakistan has in a very creative and thoughtful way, escaped the conformity of the system as she goes independent despite the fact that her society prefers dependent women.
Coming from a family without a male member, she dresses up as a man so that she could run a store and make ends meet for herself and her 9-year-old daughter.
According to Indian Times, she had to employ the patriarchal tool so that she could be safe and be able to operate her business without the fear of abuse.
The most interesting part of her story is that after a Facebook Page called Humans of Lahore, shared her story, people came together to help her raise Rs 200,000 (N1,019,170.76) to improve her welfare.
Everyone can only hope the world becomes a safer place for women in the not-too-distant future.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a one-time billionaire and the brother of Asia's richest man, Anil Ambani, was asked by the court to set aside $100 million (N36,350,000,000) in his dispute as three Chinese banks launch a lawsuit against him.
The man has, however, pleaded poverty, saying his net worth is nothing. In a plea to the court, he said that “the value of his investments has collapsed”.

He said he does not have any valuable assets which can be traded off for money. According to Bloomberg, the banks filed a lawsuit against Ambani on the defaulted loan of $925 million (N336,237,500,000) they gave to his company, Ambani’s Reliance Communications Ltd.
The order that he should set an amount into the court’s account was given by Judge David Waksman, one that Anil said he would appeal.
