Aijaz Ali Wassan, Nadia Agha

Abstract


Women in the rural areas of Pakistan are deprived of their deserved status. Prevailing system in society gives authority to males who exercise control over the lives of women. In no area of rural Sindh are women equal to men. Whole authority of women’s life is given to men who are thought to  be  superior  from all aspects. The  situation  is   even worse where women are in households. Being in four walls, they remain unaware of their basic rights and internalize the whole system of inequality which aggravates their all problems. This paper gives  information regarding housewives, their status and the extent of empowerment they have in their households. This study was conducted in the city of Khairpur, Sindh. It was an exploratory research to find out the actual position of women in households.
