Empowering rural women in Pakistan: empirical evidence from Southern Punjab

Empowering rural women in Pakistan: empirical evidence from Southern Punjab Education should be taken on priority because it is the most significant factor for the development of the rural environment. Education is the basis for foresightedness and creativity that triggers changes; it helps in the quality of human resource, quality of life and economic growth. Education takes us away from overpopulation and misery to enlighten, poverty, darkness and tradition backwardness. In the development of society, women in Pakistan has been playing a predominant role through their active participation in social as well as economic activates directly or indirectly. The present study investigates the association among education and empowerment of rural women in Pakistan by using primary data, which were collected from rural areas of Southern Punjab by using multi-stage cluster sampling. The result of the study reveals that the main determinants of women empowerment are education, socioeconomic condition of females compares to region or cost. The results also show clearly that structure of family has a relationship with the status of women as well as the participation of women in the decision-making. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Quality & Quantity Springer Journals
