Women carry dynamic personality which makes them to play a very important role in society. Major issue that we face is women empowerment in developing countries. Participations of women in economic activities are very low. Micro finance is the major platform in which women can participate in social and economic activity (Khan R. :., 2012). Moreover, participants (women) have a great and strong impact on education because more women will educate the more generation get empowered (Sundaram, 2014). Therefore, women have a power to strongly connect with the civil society, which highly support to empower the women but the perception of male dominating society creates hurdles (Awan S. Z., 2012). After so many studies, (Farooq & Waseer, 2017)NGOs are the main platform which plays significant role to solve all the problems related to women rights including women empowerment but NGOs face many external and internal challenges to promote women empowerment. In order to resolve all controversies government of Pakistan must pass laws. Thus, NGOs must organize awareness programs and media must take participate to promote and telecast programs on women rights. On the bases of previous researches it has been clear that women has an important role in economic growth. So, in forthcoming era for competing in a global world and developing a high infrastructure women participation will be extremely mandatory (Raj, 2014).
In Pakistan contribution of women is above than country population and economy. Almost 70 percent of women are engaged in farming of rural areas and remaining 3/4th women of urban areas counted in non-formal sector. According to above figure calculations, we planned to start an initiative to work for the women that count in non-formal sector like welfare house, society, NGOs etc. By building up the event planner organization to promote the women who are having so many skills, motives and creative ideas for business but they don’t have any particular platform to represent and contribute herself in the seeks of society and economy of Pakistan.
According to (Khan R. :., 2012) she studied on women empowerment through employment opportunity and this research was held in India soshe found out the most the most important role of women in economic growth through research which is underestimate due to male dominated society in India. On the bases of findings researcher encountered the problems and clearly says that in upcoming era the part of women will be highly necessary for competing with all countries which is high by its infrastructure.
Whenever we talk about women work our first perception for women is that they are not sufficient for the workplace because of their major responsibilities to take care of their children and old people who attach with them and for that reason an incredible working capable women were not place themselves at higher level in the world of business. But 70% women of rural area are working in livestock and agriculture and almost 3/4TH of urban women are working in non-formal sector. (Farooq ; Waseer, 2017) They make sure the purpose of this research paper is to know about the contribution of NGO’s about women rights in Pakistan with the help of secondary data gather from online data, published data of national and international institute. Data describe that NGO’s are playing great role to resolve the different women rights including women empowerment but faced many difficulties as internal and external challenges. After the findings of the research they conclude that Government of Pakistan take serious action and pass laws for women rights and self-esteem law of Karo-Kari (honor killing), non-government organizations start awareness programs and media must take part to telecast programs to promote women rights.
One of the important issues in developing countries is women empowerment; decision making of women in participation of economic activity is very low. A major role is played by microfinance institutions to empower women and participate in economic and social activities. (Khan ; Noreen, 2012). The research was directed in the context of Bahawalpur (Pakistan). Local branches of micro finance institutions has been selected to collect the basis information of clients and 600 females clients were selected randomly from National Rural Support Program and Khushhali Bank. Women were interviewed through structured questionnaire and the data was collected through door to door visits institutions the technique used to explore the determinants of women empowerment was multiple regression. Finally, the findings of research ensures that microfinance is a major explanatory variable of the study which shows the positive effect on women empowerment and it is suggested that microfinance institutions should expand and strengthen their support to women by increasing the amount of loan and the utilization of the amount of loan.
Civil society performs a significant role in empowering Pakistani women (Awan, 2012) the aim of this research is to create a connection between the contributions of the civil society towards women empowerment. Women, part of political parties and women organization are significantly important particularly media which cannot be overlooked in bringing awareness among Pakistani women concerning their equal constitutional and socio-economic rights. We can say that by concluding this research, women organizations, efforts of media and political parties cannot fruitful to empower a women until and unless the male controlled mind set of the society change.
The term women empowerment has become big issue now a day. An empowered woman would be self-confident, critically analyses her environment and exercises control over decisions that affect her life as well another. They face many problems and new challenges in Islamic state like Pakistan. In this research author made afford to remove the miss-conception that Islam as a religion hinder in the way of women empowerment and use regression analysis method based on primary data of Southern Punjab. Finally the result shows that Islam as a religion make sure maximum women’s right. (Chaudhry, Nosheen, & Lodhi, 2012)
According to the researcher (Dr.M.Shunmuga sundaram, 2014)prosperity, confidence, humanity, development, welfare etc, comes under the head of education. When it comes about empowerment so it comes in education and education comes in empowerment. These main key factors are strongly connected to each other. This research has been conducted in Madurai district including 455 females in the age group of 20 -50. This study has an objective to investigate the awareness of women empowerment in education of rural areas. The research findings conclude that the women empowerment has a great and strongly impact on education because the more females get education the more they empower themselves.
Development and growth of women entrepreneurs empowerment in respective of India is a research done by the (Rao, 2018), the research was about the women leadership who not only work on corporate level but work as an individual in home.

As said by (Kabeer, 2010) in her research women empowerment in development and management of interventions and flow of information, according to her, the study develop a conjecture on women issue at entrepreneur level in respective fields. In this article present different case study which address the gender discrimination and inequality between men and women at the end it was accomplished that a concern has been shown towards the women who can be stressful for females’ cognation and this need to be change.

From many years we are living in male dominant society but this need to be change because the main problem in our society women don`t have equal rights as they need to be provide. As women contribution in the economy of Pakistan is not that much as it needs to be, but if we talk about the welfare house women they are having a basic education of their skills but they do not have any platform to show or utilize their talents. So we are providing them a platform to overcome this and to eliminate some level of male dominancy.
