International Women Day: Pakistan Women Are Not Less Than Any Miracle, Do Modern Women are More Radical…?
Importance of women’s day
8th March (women day) is a day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural & political achievements of women around the world. Pakistani Women are also making their efforts to make their country socially, economic and politically enrich. They have left no stone unturned in peace & prosperity of Pakistan and considered as backbone to the country. It sees women while serving in judiciary,military forces, politics, showbiz, sports, hospitals, education and in many other social setups working on high ranks, which is a proof that women in Pakistan are coming forward in every field.
Committed to peace and security, Pakistani women are making their mark and leaving a legacy to inspire more women to join the mission. Pakistan has achieved the goal of deployment of 15 per cent female staff officers as nearly 450 women have served in UN missions.
Women are setting an example that they can do everything they want and are not less than any miracle. In a society where women have to choose either to carry on their career or to make families, they are showing that both can be done -in a very inspiring way making an example for their male members. Woman from any color, race or religion are free in Pakistani society to live their life with only a minor exceptions due to lack of education or being unaware of women rights in some areas. But overall in today, women in Pakistan are considered free and enjoying more independence than the previous ones. Instead, they are playing their key role in every field of life.

Islam Emphasis More on Women Rights
Talking to religion, Islam emphases more on women rights. The holy prophet Hazrat Muhammad SAW said in his last sermon, In the matter of women, fear Allah and accept my will to do good to them. Islam gave a lot of respect to woman that no other religion gives at all.For example it changed the status of women from slavery to respectable status in society. Islam, for the first time- in the age of ignorance, broke the chain of being dying due to her female status by giving life to women and accepting their family status into society. This way Islam considered them an asset to society talked more on their rights in Surah An-Nisa in Holy Quran. No other religion can give this value to women.
For example, The Right to LIVE, EQUALITY of Reward for Their Deeds, The Right & Duty to Obtain EDUCATION, The Right to Obtain PROVISIONS from Her Father & Brother Until She Gets Married, Right to Have Their Own Independent PROPERTY.
