Workshop stresses gender equality in Islam

KARACHI: There is no gender inequality in Islam as the religion provided all kinds of rights to women and a respectable social status and those who discriminate against women are far from the teachings of Islam, some of the leading journalists of the city in a workshop observed, on Thursday.

The journalists were part of the group belonging to print, TV and radio journalism who gathered at a local hotel to debate the issue of gender equality on the first day of a three-day workshop organised by Individualland, a non-partisan, non-profit consultancy. The workshop is eighth of the series of workshops supported by USAID and Aurat Foundation. The exercise aims at sensitisation of the electronic and print media on gender equity issues in nine districts of Pakistan.
