Female education in fata at the lowest

Cultural, traditional and social practices had kept Fata women in a highly vulnerable position. Tribal traditions not only restricted and excluded them from decision-making even at the domestic level but also limited their access to education.Literacy rate among women in tribal areas is alarmingly low and stagnant at mere 3 per cent. Factors hampering the process of education were inaccessibility to schools, poor quality of education, low retention rate, militancy, displacements and custom and traditions prevalent in those areas.
