National Policy for Development and Empowerment of Women (NPDEW) was formally enunciated in March 2002 by the Government of Ex-President Pervez Musharraf with the main objective to stop Violence against Women in the country and to provide a friendly atmosphere and equal status to Pakistani woman vis-à- vis man. The Government recognized that VAW is a provocative subject and thus in this text the government introduced various measures to cope with this wide spread and un-human problem in the society of Pakistan. This study was based on how much this Policy and other government committments helped in the elimination of VAW from the country. In spite of the announcement of the NPDEW and other measures the government has been unsuccessful to practically implement this Policy and fulfill its committments. Still there are huge gaps between theory and practices (Legislation and Ground reality). The book in hand provides the base line information for the policy makers, legislators, law students, women sectors NGOs & media. Therefore, it should be in each and every library.
