    1. Fouzia Saeed is a great woman she had the courage to stand up to the bureaucracy and address sexual harassment of herself and ten others at the UN in Pakistan after which she went on to change the law in her country no easy task Stay tuned to see what she does next.

    2. Dr Fouzia Saeed did a great job telling her story Her story was so interesting that I didn t want to put the book down and finished reading in a couple of days.

    3. Sexual harassment is for real, even at workplace The author did a great favour to women in Pakistan by fighting against the harassers in her organisation and with the help of Parliament passed the Sexual Harassment Bill Don t hush and shush it, because it didn t happen with you Take a stand and fight for it because nothing is important than your self respect and dignity.
