Principal of Policy:
The Principles of Policy are subject to the availability of resources. However, it may be relevant to mention that the acceptance of the principle of public interest litigation and some recent judgments of the Supreme Court in human rights cases have created much more space for issues to be taken up as human rights issues, based on a wider interpretation of the right to life as laid down in the Constitution. Mechanisms for Women’s Development: The Ministry of Women’s Development (now reverted to Division) was upgraded to its status of a ministry in 1989 with the primary purpose of promoting the integration of women in the planning and development process, encouraging every female advocate in Lahore.
Its main functions were to formulate public policies, recommend legislation, ensure representation of women’s interests and needs in all government organs, promote research, ensure equality of opportunities and undertake and promote projects practice. However, there have been significant for providing special facilities for women exceptions. Its main function has been the financing of a large number of small projects, largely welfare-oriented. Its primary roles in integrating women’s concerns in all sectors and formulating public policies remained limited. It neither had the authority nor the mechanisms to exercise any influence over the policies of other ministries and departments.
Women’s groups, over the years, have been demanding that the Ministry begin to play a more enhanced and decisive role in terms of formulating an articulated and comprehensive policy, be given representation on the more powerful decision-making bodies that make critical economic decisions, and play a more active advocacy role on women’s rights within government. Recent years saw some positive changes in the initiation of more innovative and development-oriented projects, more active interaction and consultation with civil society organizations, an increase in infrastructural linkages at the provincial level, and some advocacy initiatives. However, despite past efforts by some, no clear-cut policy has been developed, and its influence at the level of influencing macro-economic policies has remained minimal. Very recently, it was again downgraded to a Division, sending out a negative message to women, particularly every female advocate in Lahore those whose sustained efforts over many years had succeeded in getting it ministerial status.
