BBC 100 Women: Fighting the disability taboo in Pakistan

Disability is still considered a taboo in Pakistan and it is especially difficult for women.

As part of the BBC's 100 Women season our Pakistan correspondent Shaimaa Khalil met one of the country's up and coming artists and public speakers who has been in a wheelchair for more than seven years after a car accident destroyed her spine.

Muniba Mazari now speaks out about rights for disabled people in Pakistan.

She started painting when she was in the hospital and realised she was not going to walk again. She told Shaimaa what pushed her into starting to paint.

Listen to programmes from the BBC 100 Women season here.
