Breaking taboos in Pakistan on my motorbike

In Pakistan it is rare to see a woman driving solo on a motorbike, especially through Taliban controlled areas or in the disputed region of Kashmir. But that's just what Outlook Inspirations nominee Zenith Irfan does. Zenith was just ten months old when her father died suddenly of a heart attack at the age of 34. He had always dreamt of motorbiking around Pakistan and Zenith is now realising her father’s dream and challenging stereotypes at the same time.

Zenith appeared on Outlook on 18th October 2016.
