Title : Pakistani Political Leader/First Female Prime Minister of a Muslim Country
Birthplace : Karachi, Parkistan
Born : 1953 – 2007
Benazir Bhutto was the first woman who became Prime Minister of Pakistan twice and to date the only female prime minister in Pakistan. Leading the Pakistan Peoples Party, Bhutto was the eldest kid of former prime minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. At the age of 35, she was sworn in as Prime Minister but was removed from office 20 months later.. on grounds of corruption by the then President Ghulam Ishaq Khan. And again got re elected in 1993 and removed in 1996 on similar charges, but this time by President Farooq Leghari. She then went on a self imposed exile in Dubai in 1998.
Killed tragically in 2007 after being granted amnesty and all corruption charges withdrawn, it is believed that she was killed because of her participation of the next election in Pakistan .. and that some opposition didn’t want her to be in office. Definitely a lost to the people of Pakistan, Bhutto had voiced concern over alot of women’s issues including health and discrimination against women. She had lots of plans but they were unfortunately not achieved due to the fact that the opposition gave her lots of hard time for it. Bhutto was very much into pro life and spoke alot against abortion.
Lots of women inspires me.. but one very close to my heart is my grandmother. She is very wise.. and even when she grew alot older.. she knew exactly what she wanted.. and make sure.. that she takes prevention and not get herself hurt. Like the time, she asked my Uncle Richard for a walk in tub, I figured she knew her knees were getting weaker for the day.. and she didn’t want to fall or break her bones. Well, of course my Uncle Richard had to procrastinate.. and guessed what happened..?? my grandmother fell in the bathroom.. and broke her hips. *sigh*

Women back home .. goes back to work.. after having their babies.. not because they do not love their family and kids.. but moreos, it is a necessity in order to survive. The standard of living is so high.. one has no choice but to have a career and juggle family and office .. but not without the help of a maid. But like any smart working woman.. they always have a hidden spy camera just to make sure.. that the maid doesn’t do anything bad to their kids.. especially an infant left at their care.

The greatest housewives ever is not my generation .. but those of my mum and grandmother. They are ladies who does all the budgeting and planning for just about everything from the home, house, food, school fees.. and of course the dressing up of the family and paying all bills on time. Now i’ll have to salute them.. because they didn’t have a masters nor a phd for it. Don’t you think that our mothers and grandmothers.. are women who inspires us..??
Whether you are an inspirational women or a powerful one now, we all know that we were young ones.. and sometimes.. we slipped. Being a inspirational women are women who helped others.. who make others know that your dreams can come true as well. I know that some of these powerful and inspirational women chooses to work with drug rehab for these exact purpose. You too can inspire others.
