Author: Nazish Raza

Effects of Social Institutes on Women’s Academic Performance and Work Participation” is a case study based in Quetta. This topic has been chosen because of the lack of studies using these variables in Quetta, Baluchistan. We adapted the variables of SIGI (Social Institutions and Gender Index) and add an extra variable ‘Culture’ according to the environment of Quetta. Through a mixed method data collection and analysis, effects of different social institutions like Family code, Restricted Physical Integrity and Civil Liberties, Restricted Resources and Assets, Son preference and Culture, have been studied on women’s academic performance in Quetta and women’s work participation in Quetta. The qualitative data was collected through unstructured interview questions asked to 10 experts and the quantitative data was collected through structured questions in form of questionnaires from 25 respondents. It has been observed that culture has an influence on women’s academic performance in Quetta. Whereas work participation of women in Quetta is affected by restricted assets. The result was shown after an analysis of themes created with the help of Qualitative data and linear regression of the quantitative data. Supervisor:- Dr. Muhammad Jehangir Khan
