Stop Violence against Women in Pakistan

By Yaqoob Masih | Project leader

Every year, hundreds of women of all ages, in all parts of the country, are reported killed in the name of honour. Many more cases go unreported, and almost all go unpunished. The lives of millions of Pakistani women are circumscribed by traditions, which enforce extreme seclusion and submission to men, many of whom impose their proprietorship over women with violence. For the most part, women bear this traditional male control over every aspect of their bodies, speech and behavior with stoicism, as part of their fate. Exposure to media, the work of women’s rights groups and the greater degree of mobility in recent times however, have seen the beginnings of women’s rights awareness seep into their secluded world.

Pakistan has several laws and policies against various forms of violence. Challenges remain however in implementing these measures. Many women still lack access to free or affordable essential services in sectors such as health, police, justice and social support to ensure their safety, protection and recovery. Not enough is done to prevent violence, which is the most challenging but also effective way to eliminate violence in a sustainable way.

Joy Foundation is trying to contribute his part in this big issue in our country. Joy Foundation is working in our poor district of Pakistan where people hardly get education. They did not like to give education to the girls because they think that after a few days girls will get married and go to another house so it is better for her to learn how to work in house. Joy Foundation is trying to change this mentality of people to make girls' lives better and also if the girls are educated they are able to understand their rights. For this we request this project through our friend at GlobalGiving and request to all the partners please support us to make possible for girls to fight their rights
