Female participation in labour market has increased in Pakistan due to increased employment opportunities. Women are coming out of their homes in order to achieve economic independence as well as their rights and status like men in society and in the family. Today one finds Pakistani females working in wide range of occupations such as teachers, doctors, marketing and management professionals, as scientists, in armed forces, in transportation system. Women have also started to work in middle level occupations which were regarded as male professions a decade ago. The entry of women in labour market has fundamentally changed the status of women in the family as well in the society. This book, therefore, provides a critical review on the effect of self imposed social norms and religious interpretations on the social status of women in Pakistan. It also explores the ways how some rulers in Pakistan amended constitution to target women. The study should help shed some light on transformation of the status of Pakistani women and its acceptance and implications and should be especially useful to professionals in Social Sciences fields or anyone else who may be interested in women studies.
