Pakistan elects FIRST female speaker!  

Fahmida Mirza has become the first female to be elected speaker in Pakistan's parliament. The speaker's duties include overseeing the workings of the parliament, and deciding which debates and motions are allowed. Mirza, also a businesswoman and a medical doctor, has been elected to parliament three times.

She stated, "I am sure that we will be able to face these challenges with the support of parliamentarians, our people and Pakistani media."

Excellent :)

What next?
