GENDER DISPARITY AT WORK PLACE IN PAKISTAN: REALITY OR MISCONCEPTION IN OPERATIONALIZATION

Prof Dr Hamadullah Kakepoto, Dr. Ahmed Ali Brohi

Abstract


Gender  Disparity  is  vehemently  observed  in  every  sphere  of  life  all  over the world. However, the rate and intensity varies from one region to the other. It has been observed that gender disparity is quite vivid in developing  countries of the world. The reason is that economic pursuits and chances are not equal in those countries. Therefore, the economic burden is usually on the shoulders of men folk. The women are usually assigned women chores taking care of household assignments. Therefore, they are of lesser importance because  their nature of job is considered unproductive and less measured. Pakistan is  one  of  the developing countries of the world, hence as in almost all  developing  countries  of  the  world, in Pakistan also women are generally relegated  and  neglected  segment  of  society. As  a  result,  gender  disparity and  gender  discrimination  is  a  common  phenomenon.  The  present  paper attempts  to  evaluate  the status of women and causes of women disparity. The main focus of  the  paper  is  on Pakistan but the discussion has been made as per situation in developing countries of the world.
