I’m a sucker for economics, which obviously means I overuse a demand supply curve and everything that comes with it. But let’s park that for a second (you’re like phew). Yesterday, 11 Oct, was International Day of the Girl as declared by the United Nations – amongst other things, this day supports more opportunity and access for girls. It made me think, as a girl growing up in Karachi, I did not have easy access to a unique array of role models; I did not know all the amazing things Pakistani women, once girls like me, are accomplishing in every corner of the world. And that’s where the demand-supply curve comes prancing back in: can we increase the supply of relatable, accessible role models available to girls in Pakistan? We at Dairay are hoping to play a small part in doing that, and would love you to join our journey. Here’s a short clip for inspiration:
