At present, the scene of women's participation in economic activities in Pakistan is not so encouraging for multiple reasons. Here the role of women in development is being highlighted for the last couple of years and women development issues are being discussed at national level followed by some initiatives taken by the government and the civil society organizations. However, women participation in economic activities is less than a moderate percentage of the population, i.e. less than one percent. This paper has been written with the objective to provide an insight into the issues of women participation in economic activities and women entrepreneurship in Pakistan to the prospective women entrepreneurs, policy makers, researchers and students of development studies.
