As part of the ’25 Most Influential Women in 2022′ list published by the Financial Times Magazine in the United Kingdom (UK), PPP’s Senator Sherry Rehman, Minister for Climate Change of Pakistan, has been named among the ’25 Most Influential Women in 2022′.
A list of the “most influential” women was unveiled on Thursday, with the “influential” women being categorized into three different categories: heroes, leaders, and creators.
According to the Financial Times, Nicola Sturgeon, the former First Minister of Scotland, praised Rehman as a ‘negotiator with grit’, one of the 25 most powerful women in the world
The powerful account that Rehman gave at COP27 last year about the floods in Pakistan was a powerful reminder of the injustice within climate change that lays at its core.
It was through her speech to the international community that she spoke out about the failed bargain between the global north and the global south. Using the strength of her argument, she was able to make developed countries listen to what she had to say.
He continued to praise the Pakistani minister, praising her negotiation skills, pragmatism in navigating obstacles placed in her path by the developed countries as well as her campaigning voice, all of which contributed to the progress made at COP27 on loss and damage thanks to her negotiating skills and her pragmatism.
In her statement, Sturgeon stated that she is confident that Rehman will continue to fight for climate justice, global reforms in finance as well as the crucial funds needed to ensure that the areas of Pakistan that will be affected by this year’s floods have a future.
Among other names on the FT list, we find Meghan Markle, Sanna Marin, and Serena Williams, among others.
