There is no wrong in saying that gender inequality exists in the society. People deprives women socially, politically, economically and spiritually. The consider women as the weakest creature. The love, respect, and honor associated with women are lost in a male chauvinistic society.
There are instances of women empowerment in Pakistan. For example, Miss Fatima Jinnah, Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto, Malala Yousufzai and few other.
Though it is a solid point but how can one ignores the sound background they belong to. That is why it is right to say that gender equality is a myth. Writer strongly believes in women empowerment. One further strengthens her point by quoting the words of Brigham Young, “You educate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman; you educate a generation.”
One is the view that society must put efforts towards gender equality. The importance of woman can not be denied. Though, women are weak but have its own importance.
There are many examples in which society targets the beautiful creature. For example, honor killing, shaving of their head and eyebrows, kidnapping, sexual violence, dowry abuse, acid, marriage to Quran, child marriage etc.
Even recently a university student Naila Rind committed suicide on 1st January. According to the police report, a guy was blackmailing her. Following this event, Nighat Dad, who heads the Digital Rights Foundation, aptly summarized, the recent cyber crime bill failed to protect women like Naila Rind.
This should not be the case. The state must provide them with their due rights. As quoted by Karl Marx, ” social progress can be measured by the social position of the female sex.”
Though, with the passage of time, progress is witnessed like the recent anti-honor killing law. But still, yet more to be done.
