Raazia Hassan Naqvi and Muhammad Ibrar
Abstract—It is the need of the time that females must also be provided with opportunities to participate in decision making, so that the pace of social development of the country could be accelerated. But unfortunately in our society women has not yet been given opportunities to make independent decisions in any important issue. She has to consult men and seek his consent and obey his command before taking any action. The study discussed that men are dominant in decisions over household and the other family members especially females. Men do not even consider the view point of the women before taking any family decisions. This may be because men are mostly earning members of the society or because they have more chances of academic qualifications so that they impose their decisions in all works on their women.

Index Terms—Education and awareness, family decisions, male dominance, women.
