In a recent Gallup Survey it was revealed that more than 95% urban parents wished to provide education to their girl child and 36% were keen that they should obtain University education. The trend towards providing higher education to women has gained ground during the last two decades. Earlier, in a Survey conducted by Gallup Pakistan nineteen years ago, 24% urban parents wished to provide University education to their girls. It is notable that opinion about imparting university education to boys has not changed over the years. In 1980, Sixty-two (62%) percent urban parents were inclined to provide university education for boys, whereas the figure now is 64%.
