Trail Blazer Journalist Zubeida Mustafa

The Current

Meet Zubeida Mustafa. She is the first woman to report for Pakistan's English Language daily Dawn. Her first article on breast cancer was criticized as "Obscene" but she persisted in putting so-called women's issues on the news agenda and became a role model for a generation of Pakistani journalists. From Muhktar Mai to Malala Yousefzai, the women she covered to the women she mentored, Zubaida Mustafa shares a life-time of trail-blazing with us.
