Usually, girls are not considered to be street smart, neither are thought capable to start their own businesses/projects. Also, there is hardly 4% of women leadership in Pakistan’s corporate management. Even if you ask most of the girls educating in schools, colleges and universities, they have no clear vision about why they are studying and what they are studying. The most ridiculous answer that one hears from traditional mediocre families is that education will provide better chances for girls to getting married into good households. Hence a large portion of Pakistani educated women are not actively seen participating in upper management hierarchy of multinationals, nor they are seen actively choosing careers of passion like being an athlete or a musician and female entrepreneur are numbered as a pinch of salt in the ocean. Hence there are a very few opportunities out of the curriculum designed for girls to explore their potentialities and develop their professional skills regardless of whatever industry of choice they are from.
