Introduction

Gender & Development Studies aims at creating gender awareness and recognizing women's lived experiences and ambitions by placing them at the centre of social inquiry. It seeks social justice for the marginalized sections of the society and advocates for their human rights. Students in Gender Studies are expected to engage in the production of knowledge that emerges from feminist critique of social, cultural and institutional structures that promote patriarchy and disempower women and other genders. It comprehends that the global and transnational understanding of women's situation is essential to promote interconnections between women at all levels. It considers that development in Pakistan would occur in general and particularly for women when all genders are mobilized in the change-making effort. It includes women's contributions to knowledge in various fields, society's approaches and efforts towards understanding the status of women and strategies for empowering them. It highlights both the need for specialized academic degree awarding studies in gender and development, and the integration of gender analysis and mainstreaming gender in University of Balochistan's other fields of study.
