According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 23% of Pakistani women think men and women are not granted the same rights in terms of access to employment.
A nationally representative sample of women from across the four provinces was asked. In your community/area, are women and men granted the same rights in terms of access to employment? Responding to this, 25% said completely, 50% said to an extent and 23% said not at all. However, 2% did not give a response. This question used a women only sample and is part of a series of press releases regarding Women’s Day.
