NEW DELHI – The famous Indian tennis star and Pakistani Bhabi – Sania Mirza – has earned the honor of becoming Goodwill Ambassador of UN for South Asia, PakistanTribe learnt from international media reports.
The UN has termed Sania Mirza role model for young South Asian girls while nominating her the ambassador.
“My role is a very important battle that I will fight off the tennis court for gender equality. Gender Equality is what I believe in,” Sania said on the occasion.
In her capacity as the goodwill ambassador, she intends to educate women about gender equality. The issue, in her opinion, is a cultural problem where women feel they are second-class citizens.
“To that effect, there is an urgent need to change this mindset. Women must be made aware that they are equal to men,” Sania said.
