This panel will discuss the connections between identity and self-worth, and how Pakistanis understand them in their everyday lives. If self-worth means the value someone attaches to their own self in terms of who they are and who they want to become, then it is important for us to recognise the standards set by Pakistani society about what and who is valued and why. We also need to look at which identities have different roles and expectations attached to them, how different people wish to identify and how we may expand and change our definitions and standards of value and identity.
Preceded by a keynote from Jude Kelly CBE, Southbank Centre Artistic Director and founder of WOW - Women of the World Festival, on why a gender-equal world is a much better world for everyone.
