These are serious, urban intellectual [or pseudo-intellectual] women. Also known as 'NGO types'. Feminists also fall into this category. They are seen protesting in the streets or on current affairs talk shows when the issues are about women's rights, or crimes against women or freedom of speech. The attire is reflecting seriousness and yet tastefulness. They are cultured, and belong to the upper middle class mostly. The sign held by the woman reads 'Bol kay Lub Aazaad hain tairay..' This is a famous line from Communist Pakistani poet Faiz Ahmad Faiz which translates into: 'Speak; for your lips are free..' (image by Nariman Ansari)
