abstract
Gender inequality in Pakistan is reflected in the country's low rank in the United Nations Development Programme's Gender Development Index. The situation of women in the Gilgit, Baltistan and Chitral (GBC) region is comparatively worse than in the rest of Pakistan. Most of the resources are in the hands of male family members who decide the course of life for the women. This has made women psychologically and economically dependent. This case study discusses this topic.
