    Cette description du travail de Shad Begum a été rédigée lors de sa sélection comme Fellow Ashoka en 2006.
    Introduction
    Shad Begum is planting the seeds for a grassroots women’s movement in the isolated tribal areas of Pakistan where men determine women’s mobility, visibility, and voice. Using group activities and micro-credit to empower women, Shad builds their capacity to become politically active and run for office, thereby gradually supplanting the male-led jirgas—illegal, self-authorized local councils—that govern outside the law.
