How do we know that women have equal access to their rights?
Pakistan was home to the ancient Indus Valley civilization, which dates back to the 33rd century BCE. Despite its prosperous and glorious past, in modern history, Pakistan has suffered from decades of internal political disputes, low levels of foreign investment, and a costly, ongoing conflict with neighboring India.Ever since Pakistan and India gained independence from Britain in 1947, both countries have been bitter rivals. The two nations engaged in two wars, in 1947 and 1965, over the disputed region of Kashmir and a third war in 1971, which resulted in East Pakistan becoming the separate nation of Bangladesh. While the dispute over the state of Kashmir is ongoing, discussions and confidence-building measures in the past few years have led to decreased tensions.
