On the margins - Women Workers and the Future of Work in Pakistan

The study on narratives around the future of work and working women serves as a starting point for further analysis and discussion about women and the future of work in Pakistan.

The author, Aisha Anees Malik takes the reader through the narratives and debates, focusing on the future of work and women in Pakistan. It also raises questions on the feminist debates in Pakistan that have yet to include discussions  about the impact of technology on women’s work

By portraying the transformations in the future of work due to technological advancements in Pakistan, the study calls for looking at how women will be affected by the automation and digitalization of work. A review of literature from Pakistan indicates that the country has yet to wake up to this reality.
