Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment in Pakistan provides an overview of the legal and practical changes which have been introduced to improve the deteriorating condition of women in Pakistan. The book presents a critical analysis of the continuous and increasing misinterpretations of the principles of Islam through legal acceptance, and discusses laws which have been recently changed and have an effect on women's lives, including the Criminal Procedure Code 1898, the Pakistan Penal Code 1860, and introduction of the death penalty for gang-rape.
