In 1988, Benazir Bhutto was elected Prime Minister of Pakistan
- making her the first woman elected to lead a modern Islamic
nation. She overcame government persecution and a lack of
political experience to rise to the top of the Pakistani government.
Bhutto studied political science and philosophy at Harvard’s
Radcliffe College and Oxford University. Her lecture is sponsored
in part by the Arkansas Humanities Council, the National Endowment
for the Humanities, and the UALR Middle Eastern Studies Program.
