“Equal pay and equal opportunity for women needs to be made into a reality so that women’s rights are human rights once and for all”. My home country Pakistan is a developing country where gender disparity in work opportunities particularly equal respresentation is a cause of concern. Therefore, the Women in Law Initiative is an important organization which could reduce this gender disparity.
