Around 67 per cent working women in fields paid zero wages: Nasreen Azhar.

ISLAMABAD -- Around 67 per cent women working in agriculture sector with their full potential but they are not appropriately paid for their services which needs to be redressed.

These remarks were made by chairperson of Human Rights Commission Nasreen Azhar in an exclusive talk with reporter here on Tuesday.

She said that around 32 per cent of women employment was in non-agricultural sector including small industry at homes where the reward for such labor force to these toiling female folks was also zero.

According to 'Rural Women in Pakistan Status Report 2018' she said the government's support for microenterprises had also remained limited to low return skills and enterprises with average loan size of Rs 25,000 per woman which failed to accommodate more women.

'To accommodate more women in agriculture sector the number of unpaid working women in villages was more than the paid ones where they should paid systematically,' she suggested.
