Women Empowerment

Violation of Women Rights is a quite common practice in developing countries like Pakistan. Women Rights issues are broad and complex at larger context in Pakistan. Deep rooted causes of Women Rights violations have its social, cultural and political dimensions. Families/communities justify their acts of depriving the women from their right to property, choosing spouse, acquiring education etc. in the camouflage of culture, tradition or religion. Same is the case with girl children especially the gender based discrimination at the family level.

Women are neglected and miss out from their basic human rights in general while particularly faced with deprivation from social services, physical and emotional torture, sexual assaults, forced/mismatched marriages, pron to physical/sexual voilence and varities of vulnerabilities in Pakistan as well as in Balochistan. Giving less or no attention and consideration to the women rights at state institutions and legislation forums is also visible in Pakistan particularly its federating unites. Due to political mileages some cosmetic steps might be taken but they in their nature mostly focused on enhancing "the conditions of women" or in other words they neither truly ensuring the participation of women at policy level nor contributing in improving and enhancing "positioning of women", in fact mostly they are focused on improving the "conditioning of the women".

SEHER is striving to raise voices for enhancing and improving the "positioning" and "conditioning" of women simultaneously and putting efforts for mobilization of masses for women rights geared towards enhancing the position of women at all level, sensitization of legislator and policy makers for taking steps to ensure participation in all spheres of life particularly at political forums, designing and developing mechanisms which could lead to women empowerment. In this regard SEHER uses multi-dimensional strategies i.e. Gender Equity Programme, Combating Gender Based Violence, Sexual Gender Based Violence, Economic Development & Entrepreneurship, Campaignes and Advocacy on Ending Voilence Against Women.
