Women liberation and efforts to achieve equal domestic
and social rights struggle hard in a patriarchal society.
Feminism is strongly inculcating the idea of gender equality to avoid
discriminatory behaviors. The present research aims to study the
phenomenon of women emancipation during the Musharraf era. Pakistan
is a patriarchal society where men exercise their power over powerless
female members of the family. The current study aims to highlight women
emancipation and its dire need to maintain to give importance to women.
The study is qualitative in nature, focuses on the need for women
emancipation. The findings reveal that 21st-century Pakistani society is
still facing patriarchal pressures where women emancipation is prohibited
by powerful agencies, so there must be strong efforts to be done to work
for equality of rights of women. The study enriches knowledge on the
phenomenon of women liberation and provides insight for future
researchers to carry out significant research in this regard.
