Woman Versus Man

Socio-legal Gender Inequality in Pakistan

Extrait de la couverture . "The book is set against a backdrop of the everyday cycle of happiness and sorrow experienced by the common people of Pakistan, in particular its women. The laws and legal confrontation between the sexes have been ably portrayed. The author discusses gender disputes, economic disparities, legal and social inequalities. The culture of violence and crimes against women is illustrated with real cases. Quotations from the Quran are used to illustrate the just and equitable spirit of Islamic laws, but along with this the author discusses the ways in which these laws have been misinterpreted and distorted. Recommandations and remedies with a road map for change in the economic, social and legal environment of the country add to the value of the book. Eminently readable and containing several case studies and real life examples the book is essential reading for all thinking women in Pakistan."

creation. Economists usually refer to it as unearned income and it is applicable in
a variety of situations. A typical example would be where a business is made

It is whether modaraba type financing would dispense with interest as we know it
in modern times. The Islamic economists often point out that there is no
consensus about the theory of interest among the neoclassical economists. What
determines interest rate and which theory best explains the phenomenon is not
the real issue. There is the well-known Keynesian approach to interest rate, and

phenomenon.
