A majority of Pakistani people support women participating in sports, revealed a recent Gilani Poll conducted by Gallup Pakistan.
In a survey, a nationally representative sample of men and women from across the country were asked the following question:
“In your opinion should Pakistani women take part in sports or not?”
According to the poll result, 64% Pakistani think women should take part in sports while 35% think that Pakistani women should not participate in sports. One per cent did not respond.
However, when asked whether women should be sent abroad to participate in international sporting events, 55% of the surveyed people were against it.
The survey was carried out among a sample of 2713 men and women in rural and urban areas of all four provinces of the country, during March 2011.
Error margin is estimated to be approximately + 2-3 per cent at 95% confidence level.
