Both the literacy rate and the educational level are very low, and the gender discrimination in the field of education is quite distressing in Pakistan. This paper aims to clarify the status quo of the female education in Pakistan. The research was made from 16th to 27th December, 2006, in Punjab State, Pakistan. Interviews were conducted at several schools there. The recent education policies in Pakistan aim to raise the percentage of female attendance in primary school and to improve the literacy rate of the female population. In fact, a great many women in rural districts have had no experience of going to school; the social activities of women have been traditionally restricted in many ways, which is considered as an impediment to female education in Pakistan. Under such circumstances, the efforts have been pushed forward to realize the literacy education programs in regional areas.
