Ammarah Aftab

The study looks to elicit feedback and insight from the perspective of rural women about the degree to which the procuration of education can alleviate their position in the society. For the purpose, a total of 75 women from Nurpur Shahan (a bucolic locality of Islamabad) were randomly sampled and interviewed.

The conclusion was as follows literacy was indeed recognized by these women as a valuable tool for their economic empowerment and that they held every desire to participate in education programs provided they get both, moral and financial support from their homes.
