Turkey of the Week: No women in ads in Pakistan, says proposal

Religious council's draft also says husbands should be allowed to 'lightly beat' their wives

Turkey of the Week: No women in ads in Pakistan, says proposal
This could be the worst news to get first thing in the morning.
 
A religious council advising law-makers in Pakistan has made headlines across the world for all the wrong reasons.
 
In a draft proposal, among other things, it has suggested that husbands should be allowed to 'lightly beat' their wives, in certain circumstances.
 
It also proposes that women be barred from appearing in print and TV advertising.
 
Imagine advertising without women. 
 
This particular suggestion seems more likely to pass into law than the one on wife-beating.
 
We hope better sense prevails, on all fronts.
