Women make almost half of the population of Pakistan. They also contribute significantly to economic and social growth. However, in developing countries like Pakistan, women usually suffer from multidimensional inequality of opportunities leading to multidimensional poverty. The dimensions of family, women identity, health, education and women access to economic resources and employment contribute significantly to the discrimination of women. The provision of more opportunities to women in the form of education, better health, possession of assets, provision of credit , employment opportunities and political empowerment starts a ‘virtuous cycle’ for their family and for the overall nation. This paper aims to analyze the multi-dimensional gender inequalities faced by women in the socio-economic and political scenario of Pakistan. To reduce overall inequality along with gender disparities has been a serious challenge for most of the developing countries including Pakistan.
