WASHINGTON - Maryam Nawaz was named in the top eleven powerful women of the world on Sunday in a 2017 ranking issued by New York Times.
The NY Times named Maryam Nawaz the most courageous and most powerful woman of Pakistan.
According to the NY times, Maryam is the most suitable heir to the political empire that her father and ousted premier Nawaz Sharif has built. However, the foreign media outlet has branded corruption references and court cases hindrances in her way to further popularity.
“She had recently emerged as the right hand of her father, the former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif,” NY Times wrote.
On the other hand, Manal al-Sharif of Saudi Arabia is among the top eleven mentions of the New York Times.
