Towards women’s empowerment

The list of challenges faced by women in Pakistan is quite long and formidable. The denial of the right to work and a fair wage, the failure to recognise the work done by women, the dearth of suitable legislation that can protect the rights of women, the non-implementation of laws that have already been enacted and, above all, the prevalence of an environment that perpetuates and reinforces gender inequalities are just some of the many problems faced by women.
Even a cursory look at the challenges faced by women will reveal that they are interrelated and interdependent. These problems have been aggravated by the state’s unwillingness to resolve them. We need to draft a long-term plan to deal with these challenges. In order to strengthen the ability of women to find jobs, we must extend educational facilities to them. They should be supported at all levels so that they can make progress in the chosen fields.
