ISLAMABAD: In a groundbreaking move to empower women and promote their participation in society, Pakistan’s federal government has introduced the ‘Women on Wheels’ program. Under this initiative, 22,000 women working in the government orange sector, including employees and students, will have the opportunity to purchase scooters and motorcycles at discounted prices.
