Amjad Ali Arain, Syed Iftikhar Hussain Jafri, Sajid Yousuf Zai, Kamal Ahmed Soomro


Resistance to a positive change brings no change in a society unless its members do not work for it. In many parts of Pakistan female employment is a sensitive cultural issue. In this country the female population is more than 90 million, and quarter of it is youth, but majority of female youth are not master of their own soul because of the low female literacy rate in the country.  This study presents an in-depth outlook of female education, unemployment and its consequences for female gender. A detailed description of the factors and forces which are resisting a positive change in the society has also been presented. This paper presents practicable solutions to make female youth economically active, productive and more independent in male dominant society.
