While mourning the loss of her husband, Saadia was offered a job by Reuters which she accepted. Being in the offices reminded her of the times she had visited Aziz at work. “I assumed this profession for my beloved husband as I wanted to continue his mission in journalism,” she explained to The Media Line. “I wanted to carry on his legacy.” (Courtesy: Saadia Sehar) To this end, Saadia demanded that she be given Aziz’s old position but was refused by the bureau chief, who did not believe a Pakistani woman could be a successful photojournalist. “We live in a male-dominated society,” she stressed, “and when I joined this field it was mostly men that discouraged me. ‘You are a woman, you cannot do this,’ they would say.”
