Another Achievement of Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy

LAHORE: Two-time Academy Award-winning filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy has been honoured by British human rights organisation, The People’s Portfolio, for “inspiring leadership, great courage and compassion for fellow human beings” through her documentaries.

“I’m honored that The People’s Portfolio will present me with the 2021 Inspiring Leadership Award in a virtual program on December 8th,” she wrote.

“To amplify the stories and voices of women we need friends and partners that will help us advocate for change at all levels of society. The People’s Portfolio and its founder, Platon, are allies in the fight to change cultural norms that violate women’s fundamental human rights like domestic abuse, forced marriage, rape, so-called honor killings, and acid attacks around the world,” she further shared the details.
