Women are the integral part of society. As compare to men women plays an important role in the development of society. In Pakistan men plays a vital role and mostly women are still lives at home and take care of the family, in big cities of Pakistan like Lahore, Karachi, Islamabad etc., women are well educated and playing a vital role in the development of society but in rural regions the women are dependent, even they don’t have a power to chose the decision of her own life. In rural areas of Pakistan people think that women education is not necessary and the responsibly of women is only to serve houses. Mostly women of rural areas are uneducated because their parent are also uneducated and the way of thinking is not wide, they think study is not right for women. The fewer families in rural areas also give the education to the girls but the people of villages criticize them.

Look at the developing Countries they are well settled and rapidly inventing new technologies it is just because They do not differentiate between girls and boys education. The women in development countries work same as boys and lead every field of education. The women work hard and they also serves houses as well as perform a professional job. The daily routine of development countries women and the Pakistan’s women are very different, Pakistani women spend whole day at home and the developing countries women spend a day at office and as well as at home.

Quaid-e-Azam said “No nation can rise to the height of glory unless your women are side by side with you; we are victims of evil customs. It is a crime against humanity that our women are shut up within the four walls of the houses as prisoners”.

Patriarchal men say no to education for women. Not only this, many women are also denied the opportunity for job and earn livelihood. Their occupational choices are limited due to social and cultural constraints and inherent gender bias in the labour market. They also lack supportive facilities such as childcare, transport and accommodation in the formal sector of the labour market. Women’s labour power is considered inferior because of employer’s predetermined notion of women’s primary role as homemakers. As a result of discrimination, their role is low paid and leads to lack of potential upward mobility.

However, the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) strongly emphasized on education by saying that, “It is the prime duty of men and women to acquire education”.

Islam is a comprehensive religion that gives women a great importance. However, the narrow-minded and biased religious Ulemas have always misinterpreted it to serve their wicked purposes. It amounts to neglect the real soul of Islam that gives women equality in every sphere of life.
Women can play a greater role in the development of our nation. They have a great potential to lift our nation, which is rife with problems. God has bestowed them with all capabilities and their role in any sphere whether it is social, economic, political, cultural or educational cannot be ignored. We need to utilize their talent in right place and admit their stake in country’s progress.

  1. Great post. Thanks for sharing 🙂 I think we should also make it more possible and common to hire help at home to assist working women because these days we have a lot of extremely tired women as we are working and also carrying the household. That means we miss out on being more present at home and that nurturing energy that our grandmothers had is not as prevalent. Women empowerment is important. But how do we find a balance?

    1. Yes you are right, Women responsibilities is much more than the men, Women should take care of his family and it is better if women do online business because in online busines there is no need to go office and not a huge burden as well.

      1. Yes, I personally would go for the online approach. The problem is that it would rule women out of some careers. For example, to be a lawyer you have to work outside of home. That’s what I find tricky.

  3. Great post! I think women working outside the home is important for role modeling to daughters, seeing and experiencing the professional world, and improving career and professional lives. Better Birth control and child care availability help women advance their options in life.

  4. I agree. Unfortunately, Islam’s principle as regard to women has still kept them separate from men. And yes, if women are going to have equality, and be able to work, then the husband needs to also be more involved in helping raising the kids and in the home responsibilities, as well as having resources available to help in all those areas. I was a single Mom from when my son was nine months old to when he left home. I went to college, then worked, all while raising him alone. It wasn’t easy.
