She learned Comparative government in Harvard University and completed her BA with honors. Her Philosophy, Politics, and Economics AM she gets from Oxford University.
The thing that helped her to get to government was that Benazir's father was the Pakistani leader before her. Benazir's father was executed after charges of killing a political competitor. Her mother took his place and Benazir took it over after a while.

The fact that her father was the leader before her made her influenced by her father's ideas.
Benazir, like any women who is going out for work, needed to integrate between family obligation and career.

In 1988 there were her first elections,

Benazir was pregnant, and people were worried that her situation would limit her political actions. However, she ran the election campaign 15 hours a day, and even after her early delivery, she returned to the campaign, and that's how she was later elected to prime minister.

Her family was very involved in the political career, which is what probably influenced her.

Her husband-Asif Ali Zardari was the minister of Investment and after her death he and their son became the heads of her political party.
In any society there are different opinions and there are extremists, in Pakistan there are people who thinks that women should sty home and do not showed up in public so the fact that Benazir were chosen for government crate some opposition.

But according to the Koran there is no constriction for women to work outside the home, women study medicine and other free subjects. However, lately, in the name of religion, women are expected to be at home, and they are expected to give that up and become the loyal wife and mother.
Benazir hoped to change the women's situation in Pakistan by becoming a woman who gat influents in the country biasness, and by that, promote women in Pakistan get out, find a job, and get to influence position. She weren’t afraid to be a trend setter and break the usual rules, but in the end, she paid the bill by murdered in Suicide attack in city of Rawalpindi.
Today we remember a special woman, a wonderful woman, a leader. Benazir Bhutto was the only woman to stand and lead a Muslim state. She was the first woman to lead Pakistan and eventually led the opposition.
Why is that so special?
In a Muslim world, where women are taking out of the public eye, where women are expected to live behind their private doors at home, in modesty and quietly, Benazir got up and made a statement.
She became a role model for women all over the world to fight the oppression against women. She became a role model for women to take their future in their own hands. She became a model for women who can shape the future and succeed.
Unfortunately, not everyone agreed. Somebody was afraid of her growing her power. Somebody wasn't afraid to stop her growth, her influence and her power. Somebody decided to kill her, because that was the only way to stop her from fulfilling her dreams.
We can continue her ways. We can fight against women oppression. There is no limit to what women can do, and we are here to prove that.
