Lower literacy of female in Pakistan

Abstract

Female literacy is lower in Pakistan due to a variety of factors, including socioeconomic and religious concerns. Females are expected to marry and leave the family one day, so educating females is seen as a financial loss by the parents. As a result, fathers are more inclined to educate exclusively their sons. However, Pakistan’s female literacy rate is alarmingly low. Education was an important problem of our national life. Islam is the only religion, which in Islamic history whose courtesy, God farness, and sacrifice was an example for us. In the sub-continent people had awareness about female education because they know that a educated woman was a good protector of the culture of a nation ensures the security for the development of a new generation.
