According to the findings of the World Justice Project Report on The Rule of Law in Pakistan based on a Gallup Pakistan Survey in urban Pakistan, respondents were questioned regarding their views on women’s role in the society. 52% of female respondents agreed that women should be able to work outside of the home, whereas only 30% of men shared this view. The findings show that nearly 1 in 2 women in urban Pakistan and 1 in 5 urban men believe that a woman should be allowed to work outside home.
Question: “Would you agree with the statement that a woman should be allowed to work outside the home?”
In Pakistan, the survey was conducted between May and September in 2016 through face-to-face interviews in 2,100 households distributed proportionally across the five urban areas of Faisalabad, Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar, and Quetta.
