Women as a Pillar of Development

We are living in an Islamic State where Islam & Sharyiah have great influence on the society. Islam pays a lot of regards to the mankind especially women either she is a household lady or a working lady. It is our male dominated society which tries to subordinate the women assuming them as a weaker sex.

Today in the 21st century, women are performing their best roles in every field of life. It is very important that we have to build our nation as strong as we can by providing the opportunities. Development of any nation is not possible without the women. But the gender biasness still exists in our society. It is assumed that women may misuse these opportunities in the name of freedom. Often, it is being heard from the community that they are not willing to let the women go outside for livelihood or be independent. It is the need of the time to clear the concept of the society by gender sensitization. Ladies working outside are not respectable for them as compared to household. Development needs the equal contribution to end the gender biasness.

Many laws have been passed to protect the women rights but mostly people are not satisfied as women don’t try to take action against their family member or to whom who is culprit in the name of family status or respect in the society. Women are being empowered in the society through public & private sectors initiatives. It is very important to give the trainings on gender equality & human rights at community level not only Government Officials or NGOs.

Now a days, our society is influenced from the T.V channels especially dramas which are representing women as an extra mood that’s another reason which made the community to subordinate there women. Although typical disputes of mother-in-laws & daughter-in-laws are being enjoyed by everyone as role model rather giving them positive aspect

Gender Sensitization at community level is important for the development of not only for society but also for a nation. These young women are the mothers of the nations. They have to contribute in the economy of the country rather they kept themselves inside the chaar diwari (concept for Home). Women empowerment thought development is only possible if they let themselves to realize the situation of national needs.

It is need to change the concept of the society that they don’t need to let their daughter-in-laws to work outside, so she don’t have any need to get higher education. A full stop has been placed in her life by saying that stereotypical sentence. So we can say that a right of education is exploited here as well as right of opinion. No doubt that concept of empowerment and feminism has changed the society but change exists on a very low level. Women are empowered but still bounded with old traditions, cultures & norms. We have made our Islamic concepts more complex rather than Islam has flexibility for the mankind.

In shortly, I want to conclude that women are the future of our nations so let them use their all rights which they have as fundamental rights instead of exploiting them in the name of stereo typed traditions.
