Plight of Women in Pakistan

Plight of Pakistani women
The status of women in Pakistan continues to fluctuate considerably across different classes, regions, and the rural/urban divide due to uneven socioeconomic development and the impact of tribal, feudal, and urban social customs on women’s lives. While some women are soaring in the skies as pilots of fighter planes, others are being buried alive for defying tribal traditions.                 When Taliban took over Swat, they enforced a complete ban on female education in the Swat district. Some 400 private schools enrolling 40,000 girls have been shut down. At least 10 girls’ schools that tried to open after the January 15, 2009 deadline by the Taliban were blown up by the militants in the town of Mingora.  
According to a newspaper, the 2008 report of violence against women in Pakistan makes horrific reading. In that year alone, 7,733 cases of violence against women were reported in the media.The 1,516 were murdered while 472 were killed for reasons of ‘honor’.                       Women cannot even walk safe in the streets of land of pure. Whenever they are out shopping, the local Shame.Less crowd would harass them, when they are out for work, they are subjected to stalking, when they drive, ambitious men trying to act cool would come in front of their cars, taxis, rickshaws, pass below the belt comments, sometimes even embarrass them as they are with their family or friends. These things I have seen personally happening in the streets of Lahore, Islamabad and Gujranwala as I grew up in these cities. I have also lived in U.K for few months and honestly, I did not witness such ignorance outside Pakistan. Maybe it is also present outside, but not at a level where we, Pakistani men take it in our land of pure.
