In the early 90's, women were only viewed as mothers and housewives. They were considered as an under-utilized resource for development. But now, women in Pakistan have progressed in various fields of life such as politics, education, economy, health and many more.In the past, Fatima Jinnah, sister of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was an instrumental figure in the Pakistan Movement. She worked with him passionately for the freedom of Muslims.Then, Benazir Bhutto became the first female Prime Minister of Pakistan and the first women elected to head a Muslim country. She played an important role for the progress of country.

They have been given limited educational opportunities, have been restricted by law from many activities and have been excluded from professional societies and publications. Today, we are seeing more participation by women in the technical fields like Arfa Karim, who was the youngest certified Microsoft Professional of Pakistan,



Shirmeen Obaid Chinoy represents Pakistan all over the world through her documentary "Saving Faces". She has been lauded as Pakistan's first Oscar winner. Women can now be seen participating in all kinds of sports from cricket to athletics and even marathon like Naseem Hameed, a Pakistani athlete who became the fastest women in South Asia when she won a gold medal in the 100-meter event of the 11th South Asian Federation Games. Women in Pakistan hold high ranking positions as the CEOs and executives. Recently, the President has appointed Dr Shamshed Akhter as the first female Governor of the State Bank of Pakistan. Two lady doctors of the Pakistan Army have also risen to the rank of major generals. The female doctors joined hands with the male doctors in the times of need i.e earthquakes, floods and other natural disasters.


No doubt, our nation has so many hardworking ladies who are not only running their houses but also our country's economy. Pakistani women will change current terrible situation of our country through their efficiency and hardwork. No wonder, women plays an important role for the progress of country.
