PESHAWAR: Expressing grave concern over the death ratio of women in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) in honor killing, domestic violence and other related issues, the office bearers of Aurat Foundation (AF) on Tuesday demanded of the KP Government to legislate the domestic violence bill in the province aimed at reducing the challenges being faced by women. “The KP is only province where the bill is still not passed while in other provinces the bill has passed. Every year more than 14,000 women were killed in Pakistan in the name of honour killing, domestic violence and other issues. Meanwhile KP is on top in this regard”, disclosed Shabeena Ayaz, resident director, AF while briefing the journalists here at Peshawar Press Club. She said that every year the AF shared and published the data about the victim women of honour killing, domestic violence and others but the data in current year is more as compare to the previous years. However, she ensured that they would very soon collect the data and would bring before the media. “Currently, 101 million children round the globe are out of schools and half of them are girls. The girls’ percentage in Pakistan is lower at 44 per cent enrolled in schools while boys at 56 per cent”, said Shabeena. Although, she said the girls enrollment rate dropped drastically after primary level in both public and private institutions, adding that education was a fundamental human rights that be safe and accessible for all.

Out of 24.02 million out of school children 52.3 percent are girls”, she said.
