How To Protect Women Through Panic Alarm

Violence against women in Pakistan, particularly intimate partner violence and sexual violence, remains a pervasive and critical issue, posing a significant threat to women’s human rights. This problem encompasses various forms of abuse, such as forced marriages, workplace sexual harassment, domestic violence, and honor killings.


Historical Perspective:

The late 70s and 80s witnessed a setback in women’s rights in Pakistan, with discriminatory amendments to laws. However, recent years have seen progress, with the introduction of policies aimed at curbing practices like early-age marriages, honor killings, sexual harassment, domestic violence, and rape. Many of these initiatives have been spearheaded by women parliamentarians.

Cultural and Religious Factors:

Dr. Rukhsana Iftikhar and Dr. Maqbool Ahmad Awan highlight that Pakistan’s agrarian nature fosters a mindset where personal ownership is commonplace, contributing to the perception of women as possessions. The persistence of violence is attributed to deeply ingrained religious and cultural norms, where women are expected to uphold modesty while men project masculinity to safeguard family honor.

Acts of Violence:

Poverty plays a significant role in the prevalence of violence in Pakistan, with a high percentage of illiterate women unaware of their rights. Education emerges as a potential tool for empowerment, creating awareness and enabling women to assert their rights and improve their societal status. Ancient traditions and customs, including exchange marriages, marriage with Quran, Karo Kari, honor killings, and dowry, further exacerbate the issue.

Domestic Violence:

Disturbingly, a substantial number of women in Pakistan experience domestic violence, with a 2008 survey revealing that 70% of respondents reported such incidents. Law enforcement often fails to view domestic violence as a crime, and cases are frequently refused registration. Marital rape, considered illegal under Pakistani laws, remains a distressing form of spousal abuse.

Honor Killings:

Honor killings, deeply rooted in history, persist in Pakistan, with thousands reported annually. Despite legal obligations to treat these incidents as homicides, authorities often neglect their responsibilities, allowing this form of violence to endure.

Rape and Sexual Violence:

Sex remains a taboo subject in Pakistan, hindering women from reporting rape experiences. Shockingly, a Human Rights Watch study reveals a rape occurring every two hours and a gang rape every hour. Professor Shahla Haeri suggests that rape in Pakistan is institutionalized and tacitly or explicitly approved by the state, while lawyer Asma Jahangir indicates that a significant percentage of women in custody experience physical or sexual abuse.
