In this article, we’ll see what role a woman in society plays, how much a woman can do for her country, and what the rights of a woman in her country are. We’ll look at who the most well-known women in Pakistan are and what they’ve accomplished. Let’s begin to learn about this woman and her internationally celebrated day.

The goal of the article

The purpose of writing this article is to pay tribute to the women who made Pakistan proud and to every woman in Pakistan playing her role dutifully. I also wanted to share my thoughts about the role of women.

If a woman ever stops playing her part, the whole system of a house, community, or whole state will shatter. A woman is as important as a man, but we don’t see her that way and end up devaluing her. A woman in society deserves to be treated far better than we treat her.

Introduction of Women’s Day

The whole world celebrates March 8th as an international day for women. The purpose of this day is to honor women, appreciate the role of women in society, and remind the world about the rights of women. Women earned this day through socialism, fighting for rights, and protests.

After so many years of hard work and fighting for rights, a woman in society is still seen as just a caretaker of the house.

The role of a woman in society

A woman in society has many roles, and each one requires her to be tolerant and patient. A woman is a mother who dedicates her whole life to her kids. She’s a sister who has to let go of her wishes to make her brother’s or younger sister’s come true.

When a woman is a wife, she has to reshape her whole personality for the man she spends her life with while the man doesn’t invest equally. A daughter is born with the responsibility of her parents and lives her life with the responsibility of her parents-in-law.

A professional woman carries her professional as well as domestic roles together in order to keep her life balanced.

A woman plays all her roles dutifully, but when it comes to the rights of a woman, the whole world pretends to be dumb.

The top ten fundamental rights of women

Here are some basic rights for every woman:

  1. Right to education
  2. The right to safety
  3. Right to vote

  5. No gender discrimination.
  6. No domestic violence
  7. Sexual and reproductive rights
  8. Equal opportunities for women
  9. Equal wages for women
  10. Heirship
