16 Ways to Women’s Empowerment in Pakistan

The U.S. Mission in Pakistan is working to improve the lives of Pakistani women and combat gender-based violence. For the recent international “16 Days of Activism” campaign, they organized a series of initiatives to highlight and energize their partnerships with Pakistan’s government and civil society to support women’s rights.

Here’s one initiative:

•  Promoting Women’s Enterprise. Expanding education for women, setting up legal aid clinics, and advancing public education campaigns on women’s issues — what do they have in common? They are some of the projects being funded through the U.S. Embassy Gender Equity Program. This $40 million program provides grants to local organizations working on women’s issues throughout the country.
