“Being a woman in Pakistan who also lives away from her family, I don’t have a father. My brother is abroad. My mother lives in another city, so I am not surrounded by a close family system. All my close childhood friends are in another city as well.
“You feel extreme loneliness, and women are generally gaslighted by society too.”
About Turkish Shows & Celebrities
