Gender Equality

Gender Equality

EACH Pakistan believes that in gender equality policy “Women and men are to have the same power to shape society and their own lives”.
Starting from this objective, EACH is working towards four sub-goals:

  • Equal division of power and influence. Women and men are to have the same rights and opportunities to be active citizens and to shape the conditions for decision-making.
  • Economic equality. Women and men must have the same opportunities and conditions as regards education and paid work which give economic independence throughout life.
  • Equal distribution of unpaid housework and provision of care. Women and men must have the same responsibility for housework and have the opportunity to give and receive care on equal terms.
  • Men's violence against women must stop. Women and men, girls and boys, must have the same right and access to physical integrity.
