"Without the co-operation of their women, no nation can progress". The founder of Pakistan, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad All Jinnah, claimed this. Both man and woman play an equally productive role in the political and social development of a society. Within the scope of their respective roles, they contribute for the development of political and social integration. In present times, women are actively performing diversified roles in the spheres of politics, leadership and social service. This research paper encompasses the political and social efforts and struggle of women in the achievement of Pakistan. This research is to assess and explain the struggle by Muslim women of the Indo-Pak sub-Continent, since five decades before creation of Pakistan, which motivated them to understand the importance of political participation and to initiate a movement for a free homeland. The educational, social and political endeavours contributed by these women turned the dream of Pakistan into a reality and their sincere efforts continued even after independence.
