Equality of Gender in Pakistan

Now the questions arise, however, is it a right move to suppress the voice of women? Working on the question of gender equality we have grassroots feminist efforts. Yet, we still lack providing gender equality to women in our society.

There are many slogans such as ‘ghar ka kaam, sab ka kaam‘, ‘khud khana garam karo‘ and ‘consent ki tasbeeh roz parhein‘ were heard during Aurat March. A liberal touch that has not gone well with a lot of people else the March highlights issues that women face in the society.

In a household where both the husband and wife are working, she is also responsible for taking care of the job and kids and support the family too it is still considered a woman’s duty to do household chores.

Demeaning slogans against men were also seen during the protest which is also highly condemnable. However, at the same time, we cannot neglect the importance of men in society.

Minister of the National Assembly Aamir Liaquat Hussain requested Prime Minister Imran Khan to run an inquiry to discover the actual actors behind the march and their agenda. A number of established politicians, religious scholars, and actors also attacked the Aurat March, calling it against Pakistani cultural values.

Some men also came with the idea of raising the gender wars on social media,

After the attack by women on the Aurat March

‘Mera Jism Meri Marzi’

the other slogans which said, ‘Mera Jism Meri Marzi‘ was also highly criticized and rightly so! However, threatening to rape a woman because you don’t like her clothing choices is practically a crime.

A well-Known Islamic cleric made a video rounds on the social media, in which he is visibly furious over a placard at the Aurat March.

The video describes the idea that if a men threatened women with rape because they claim a right to their bodies, men can also claim the right to rape women. 67000 total are the views of that video.
