An educated woman can do wonders in the society. Woman power is still un-exploited and under-estimated in our country especially in the villages. Women have always played a pivotal role in the history of Pakistan, and in the independence movement, they fought for the cause shoulder to shoulder with the men and displayed a unique strength and resolve.
But unluckily after the freedom, the role of women was ignored badly. Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah, mother of the nation, is the biggest example of this neglection. Fatima Jinnah not only worked with her great brother but also after his death, worked for the country till her death from the platform of Muslim League. In 1964, he also fought the presidential election. She was a strong believer in the women power and their right to participate in the progress and construction of the country.
In our country, women are as intelligent and energetic as men, but they don’t have a proper platform to render their services for the nation. It is very crucial for our future, that we strive more to enable the women. More and more universities, colleges and schools should be setup to educate the women, so that we have a continuous supply of educated women on the national horizon, and this new polished and educated influx of power will definitely play a key role in the prosperity of the nation.
To enable the women its also very crucial that a comprehensive programme on the behalf of government and with the support of NGOs should be launched to provide employment to the ladies. Merit should be kept in perspective for the jobs. There is one another evil of our society that the ladies without any moral or educational value get the jobs just because they have relations to someone with lots of clout.
Even now, there are many ladies present, who took part in the independence movement, but now they are living in very sub-human conditions. It would be a very good idea to resurrect them and to leverage their experience and knowledge.
Its a fact that ladies can make the world a better place and they can do this like men, if not better than them. Its time we should now rise above the gender bias.
