Women at Risk: Militancy in Pakistan

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter

Abstract

Malala was shot because she wanted restoration of law and order in the Swat Valley and demanded the right to go to school. The political situation in khyber pukhtunkhwa has been fragile since the 1980s due to the influx of refugees from Afghanistan and has deteriorated further as Pakistan has joined the US alliance in the War on Terrorism. The Constitution of Pakistan provides the guiding principles for policy and guarantees fundamental human rights and special protection of women and children. The relationship between women and law is that of protection, which will continue to remain a problematic articulation of the principles of personal justice. Many women cannot leave their homes because of the restrictions imposed by the local cultural and patriarchal practices on them, and in the absence of men of the family, the women are not allowed to step out of the house alone. Women could not be seen in public spaces and female education became a victim.
