P&G - HOPE Collaborate for #WeSeeEqual Program

Gender equality – which becomes reality when all genders are treated fairly and allowed equal opportunities. In our Pakistani society where a male child is regarded as more valuable to the family, girls are often denied the right of life, denied the right to name and nationality. Gender discrimination is caused by the sense that certain occupations are a man’s job or a woman’s job. If we eliminate gender discrimination from Pakistan, we can enable women to contribute a lot in developing nation.
