Women are playing a major role for the developmental change in rural communities in Pakistan. But unfortunately their work is not regarded as productive, organized and documented all over the world. However, in this present age of industrialization, rural women are uplifting the living standards by performing various activities in Pakistan. Since our population of women is approximately 50% of the total population and the majority lives in rural areas so the main focus of development is rural communities and agriculture.
Women’s labour force participation rate has increased over the years, as they have been intensively involved in agriculture and its allied fields. They perform abundant labour intensive jobs such as weeding, cotton stick collections, grass cutting, picking, and separation of seeds from fibre According to Labour Survey of Pakistan (2006-07), 70% of female labour force are engaged in agriculture and its allied fields and play very hard-hitting role like milking, feed and watch of the livestock.
