Benazir Bhutto 23 Jul 2007
Benazir Bhutto talking to Miriam O'Reilly on Woman's Hour
Leader of the Pakistan People's Party.

In 1988 Benazir Bhutto became one of the first democratically-elected female prime ministers in an Islamic country and one of the most high-profile women leaders in the world. Serving two terms as Prime Minister of the Pakistan People’s Party, less than a decade later, her cabinet collapsed amid allegations of corruption and she became an exile. Despite the charges made against her, Bhutto has vowed to return to Islamabad and stand for a third term in the forthcoming elections. Miriam will be asking whether she has made a power-sharing deal with the current military ruler General Pervez Musharraf, and how she will endeavour to tackle the security crisis, political divisions and the threat of terrorism. And this time around, will her party finally honour their long-standing commitments to improve the rights of women?
