‘Pakistani women still a neglected segment of society’

Karachi: More than 50 percent of the Pakistani population comprises females, but the majority of them have become isolated due to lack of education and social vision.

“They are the neglected segment of society and it is direly needed to provide them education and vocational training,” said Professor Dr Nasreen Aslam Shah, chairperson of the Department of Social Work, University of Karachi, on Monday. She said the Pakistani woman should be equipped with state-of-the-art facilities so that they could take part in strengthening the country’s economy and performing social responsibilities.

“The authorities must establish training centres in every district of Karachi to train and educate woman so that they can open home industries which would bring economic prosperity and confidence in their lives.”

Shah, who is also the director of the Center of Excellence for Women, KU, was addressing a lecture entitled “Need and Significance of Social Research in Karachi” in the KU.

Dr Shah said women in the rural areas were deprived of basic necessities, and claimed that there were no healthcare centres and schools, posing big challenges of harassment and other issues to the women.
