Gender Studies By M.Nawaz Khalid JWT. Gender Studies as a subject was introduced in Pakistan in 1990s. Since then, it is being taught at many universities of the country with different names, like Women Studies, Gender Studies, Gender and Women Studies – with almost the same undercurrents. Though late, the Federal Public Service Commission has eventually adopted this discipline to enrich its list of optional subjects of CSS examination. It will definitely create gender sensitization, at least amongst those who will opt it, about the gender roles, relationships and responsibilities. However, some important areas like Islamic Feminism, Gender Mainstreaming and Gender Analysis etc., which should have been part of the syllabus, are absent from its constituents.
The book Gender Studies for CSS will help students in understanding the Gender dimensions at large. I appreciate the efforts of the author in gathering the material at one place with sincere acknowledgement to the sources. I am sure those who read it will not only benefit from this book in CSS examination but I would expect them to read it as a tool for knowledge which in-turn can help them in changing the perspective of the s0ciety at large towards role of gender in development and nation building.
