Sister in Arms is a documentary released by Inter-Services Public Relations to honor women serving in the armed forces. The video features brave daughters of the country who have broken stereotypes to work alongside their male counterparts, keeping Pakistan safe.
Pakistan is the only predominantly Muslim country in which women serve as high-ranking officers and in combat roles, and a sizable unit of female army and air force personnel has been actively involved in military operations against Taliban forces. Women have been taking part in Pakistani military since 1947, after the establishment of Pakistan. In 2006, the first women fighter pilot batch joined the combat aerial mission command of PAF. There has been a rise in the numbers of women joining the combat PAF in recent years
