Half the Sky encases some of the best fiction written by women writers of Pakistan , a country that is only some fifty-seven years young, have not lagged behind as far as literature goes. In this volume one sees the versatility with which women writers have handled the dexterous task of penning short fiction. These are stories by women who have had the courage to break the silence of the centuries and tell their won stories in their own words.

In fact this volume marks the coming of age of a multi-lingual identity of the woman writer in Pakistan. The collection includes stories written in Urdu, Punjabi, Sindhi, Balochi and Seraeki. With themes ranging from the personal to the political and regional to the universal, the anthology makes for good reading by famous writers like Bapsi Sidhwa, Khadija Mastoor, Farkhanda Lodhi, Zahida Hena and other who rightfully claimed their share of the sky.
