KARACHI: We all have been basking in the treats that were the posters of Aurat March 2020; not only did the participants outdo themselves, there were some by male allies that would definitely make you pause and think about the cause and demands of the rally.

Not only have the men stepped up, they were also urging fellow men to use their privilege to make the society better. Here are some of the posters that caught our attention!
