Increasing Participation of Females in Pakistan’s Workforce

According to the results of the Population and Housing Census in 2017, women make up 48.76% of the total population of Pakistan. And for a developing country like Pakistan, there is a crucial need for more female participation in the workforce. More female  is an important requirement.    

Barrier of Conventional Mindset

We all know what our supposed traditions are with regard women venturing out of the homes and doing jobs. Then there is also the question of certain types of jobs being “appropriate” and “suitable” for women. Many professions and career paths are considered rather unsuitable and inappropriate for women. This is a major obstacle for countless aspiring young girls who could otherwise have grown into competent professionals in various fields while also being productive contributors Jobs in Pakistan.

The good news is that as education and awareness become widespread, more and more people are shunning this mindset. As a result, we are starting to see a very encouraging trend where more women than ever before are now entering the workforce. What’s more, their number seems to be on the rise every year, which is a really big thing.

Encouraging Signs

The majority of our female population is from rural areas where there are next to no opportunities. However, the 2012 Economic Survey of Pakistan shows a major increase in the number of working women in the big cities and urban areas. In the same way, the 2017 Economic Survey shows further promise. There is now a minimum quota of 10% for women in public sector jobs. In another important development, there must be one female member on the board of directors of every corporate entity.

These are all very promising signs because the women participate in the public and corporate sector, the more progress will witnessed in our economy.

Reasons for this Change

A number of factors can be attributed to this turnaround. More education and awareness means more emphasis on education means that more females are now acquiring quality education. Universities are seeing a lot of more girl students than they were ten or fifteen years ago.

Because of this, the literacy rate among women has risen incrementally which has resultantly opened up countless new career possibilities for them. In the decades gone by, most of the women used to be on very low-level or basic level jobs that were low-paying with less chances of growth and progress.  

Today, we see lots of female-led companies. There are more female startup founders/owners and CEOs today than there were at any point in the history of Pakistan. The coming future is likely to produce more female trailblazers who will surely inspire a whole generation of young girls to step up and make their mark in the world.
