This paper traces the evolution and regeneration of the feminist movement in Pakistan. It examines the contemporary feminist movement in the country against the backdrop of strong opposition faced by protest style congregations named ‘Aurat March’ on international women’s day. Weaving the narrative through conversations of leading feminists and prominent individuals belonging to the religious right, it postulates how the backlash to raising issues of sexuality and body politics has regenerated the feminist movement in Pakistan.
