[Interesting Fact] While women have been a part of the Pakistani armed forces since their inception, their roles have been primarily restricted to technical or operational positions. But a tweet shared by IBN-Live on Tuesday reminded the world that there are also two female generals in Pakistan, the first in the Muslim world (IBN-Live). In 2002, Shahida Malik became the first female major general, as well as the first general officer commanding the Pakistan Army Medical Corps. A year later, Shahida Badshah was promoted to the two-star rank and became the first female commandant of the Army Medical College. The tweet, by Sonia Faleiro, an award-winning writer, shows the two women together in uniform, though it is unclear where the photo was taken.
