Pakistani women make more important financial decisions than men: Gallup

Public participation increased in August 14 ceremonies over past 15 years: Gallup

ISLAMABAD, Apr 12 (APP): 47% Pakistani women claim to make important financial decisions in consultation with their husbands while only 23% Pakistani men make important financial decisions in consultation with their wives, said survey conducted by Gallup Pakistan.

According to special press release, women, within the context of the developing world and especially within Pakistan, continue to be more excluded from the financial sector than men thereby, also relying upon their spouses when it comes to making important financial decisions.

Not only is there a wide gap between the number of women who make financial related decisions independently compared to men (i.e. lower proportion of women than men), there is in fact a much higher proportion of women compared to men who consult their spouses before making such decisions.
