A ceremony was organized at Women’s University Multan on the occasion of International Women’s Day under the auspices of Director Student Affairs, which was presided over by Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Uzma Quraishi.

Speaking on the occasion, Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Uzma Quraishi said that the purpose of celebrating this day is to make women aware of their basic rights and to highlight their social significance as mothers, sister, daughter and wife led towards great relationship and stability of society.

In Pakistan and other countries suffering from such social ills, women are now being exploited equally inside and outside the walls. In some areas of life, gender inequality has gone far beyond physical and sexual violence, kidnapping, humiliation, and incitement to suicide, murder on charges of misconduct and dishonesty, and so much suffering.

Even today, women in the world, despite their full mental and physical abilities, are discriminated and two-third of the world’s majority women are illiterate.
