Despite women’s empowerment being at the heart of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, Pakistan’s ranking for gender equality remains one of the lowest in the world. “Our country’s battle against low female education numbers is not new, but in recent years, we have seen a rapid increase in ed-tech, too. There has been hopeful development as it’s opening up previously inaccessible avenues for women who want to lead from the front”, stated Areej Khan, VP Digital, Telenor Pakistan. Consolidating the need for gender equality in the workforce, Khan added, “12 out of Pakistan’s estimated 20 million home-based workers are women, and according to UN Women, they directly contribute 65 percent of the total home-based work revenue to the economy.”
