KARACHI : National Commission on Status of Women (NCSW) has developed series of indicators in partnership with government statistical agencies and international organizations to aid in generating reliable data on violence against women (VAW) in Pakistan.
Chairperson NCSW Khawar Mumtaz in a statement issued on Monday said that the Commission had planned a series of seminars across the country in the current month to share the finalized Indicators with key stakeholders including the government, policy makers and the civil society.
The senior activist and researcher mentioned that indicators developed by NCSW had also led to launching of the first ever survey on VAW in Pakistan.
