the absurdity of these old fogies. They don’t allow their daughters to schools and will want lady doctors for their treatment. Medical experts says 60% of women in Pakistan have vitamin D deficiency because of malnutrition. They quality as well as quantity of food for female and male is based on discrimination. It is considered that female needs low calorie intake and serve with what is left at the table. As a matter of fact women needs more nutritious food because they have to feed and bring up children. Women in our country are a dependent entity and can’t self-rely on its own in financial matters. They are not able to get good jobs commonly ascribed to a lack of education and also have less reserved quotas in every sector and due to these factors it has scuttled the way to emancipation of subjection. Women who are working in industries, factories and mills are given less wages as compared to men although they are contributing much to the economy of Pakistan. Simply they are victimized on gender basis everywhere by everyone. This disparity and debasement should be obliterated and we have to discern their role in development otherwise it will slump these fragile beings into inferiority complex and will made them dumb-driven cattle which cease their latent potentialities and finally becomes babes in the woods. If women are supposed to be the weak, pale and frail beings, weak and unhealthy posterity will be ensued and its a fact weak and unhealthy citizens won’t be able to contribute much to the progress and prosperity of a country.
