32% of Pakistanis think the biggest problem being faced by women today is the lack of education. GILANI POLL/GALLUP PAKISTAN


Islamabad, March 13, 2013

According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 32% of Pakistanis think the biggest problem being faced by women today is the lack of education.

A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked “In your opinion, what is the biggest problem being faced by women today?” Responding to this, 32% said ‘lack of education’, 21% said ‘physical abuse’, 18% said ‘cultural practices (karo kari, dowry etc.), 14% said ‘lack of health services’, 7% said ‘lack of employment’ and 6% said ‘lack of balance between family life and employment’. However, 2% did not give a response.

It is interesting to note that men (30%) and women (35%) both see the ‘lack of education’ as the biggest problem being faced by women today. However, the awareness of lack of education being a problem is higher amongst the young with 33% seeing it as the biggest problem and only 24% of the elderly seeing it as the biggest problem. There is also not much difference between urban and rural localities, with 33% of people in rural areas identifying lack of education as the biggest problem and 31% in urban areas identifying lack of education as the biggest problem being faced by women today.

Question: “In your opinion, what is the biggest problem being faced by women today?”
