Women are considered the backbone of any nation and our Constitution provides for equality of women: however, this provision is often not practiced. The vast majority of Pakistani women, in particular, those in rural areas from Sindh, Balochistan and KPK suffer in absolute misery and wretchedness. In Pakistan women are less valued and rarely appreciated part of the society. Their spirits and wills have been shattered by neglect, domestic violence, illiteracy, underage marriages, lack of education and grinding poverty. However, the rulers are requested to show commitment towards the betterment of womenfolk as they could play a significant role in development and progress of the country.
