Ending violence against women in Pakistan

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/BulletinArticle


Pakistan ranked 150th out of 153 in the Women, Peace and Security Index. Around 27 per cent of women in Pakistan experience intimate partner or domestic violence in their lifetime and only 51 per cent perceive themselves to be safe in their communities.These depressing figures are despite the existence of a raft of strong legislation focused on women’s rights that has come into force over the past decade.
