According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 12% of Pakistani women think men and women are not granted the same rights in terms of access to education.
A nationally representative sample of women from across the four provinces was asked “In your community/area, are women and men granted the same rights in terms of access to education?” Responding to this, 40% said ‘completely’, 47% said ‘to an extent’ and 12% said ‘not at all’. However, 1% did not give a response. This question used a women only sample and is part of a series of press releases regarding Women’s Day.
