Product Description

My DAWN Years Exploring Social Issues “A trail-blazer, Zubeida Mustafa has the courage of a journalist, the perfectionism of a researcher and an ability to see Pakistan through the lens of disadvantaged classes. In this fascinating memoir she tells us of her struggles to put social issues — education, health and social security — high on the national agenda. It also traces Dawn’s travel through technological revolutions in the print media, its efforts to bring out new features, such as Books & Authors, a sterling contribution to journalism and literature both. Further we learn about Dawn’s travails during the long spells of authoritarian rule, as it strove to deliver sane counsel to the state and the people, and to survive to fight for another day. A must read for journalists, their defenders and their victims both.” – I.A. Rehman Human rights activist and columnist “My DAWN Years is simultaneously Zubeida Mustafa’s inspiring autobiography; an insider’s perspective on Dawn’s evolution; a ringside view of Pakistan’s tumultuous decades; an activist’s account of the struggle for women’s rights and socio-economic development. It is a brave woman’s chronicle, demonstrating honesty and grit. She stands tall in an illustrious line of fearless journalists, writing with the courage of their convictions.” – Tahira Abdullah Development worker, researcher and rights activist
