Pakistan’s last government had introduced three laws for safeguarding the rights of women and aimed at curbing the practice of honour killing and inhuman customs of swara and vani (giving away small girls to settle family disputes), allowing bail to women in most of the offences and amending the Offence of Zina (Enforcement of Hudood) Ordinance so as to stop its misuse.
The women from tribal areas from the North have still been deprived of these rights.
