The annual report of the State of Human Rights in Pakistan released by the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) for the year 2020 has set alarm bells ringing over the plight of women in the country.
The HRCP has highlighted other forms of violence against women, which include sexual assault and domestic violence prevalent across the country.
Other human rights abuses to target women include child marriage and honour killings, which even though impact men as well, are largely centered on controlling and subjugating women according to experts.
The HRCP report reiterated Pakistan's concerning standing on the Global Gender Gap Index of the World Economic Forum, where the country is placed third from bottom, that is, 151 out of 153 countries.
