Be it receiving Tamgha-e-Imtiaz or speaking up for right, Mehwish Hayat has become a symbol of women empowerment and pride in recent years. This time the actress has made it to the list of 5 most influential Muslim women across the world who are making change in the aspect of gender equality and women rights.
Taking it to Twitter, Mehwish took the opportunity to share the news with her fans.
I am so honoured to be chosen by the international Magazine, “Muslim Vibe” as one of the top five Muslim women in the world who are breaking stereotypes and changing the world. To be thought of in the same breath as women I look up to is humbling 🙏🙏🙏 https://t.co/3NUkAkIyQe
