Abstract

The objective of this research is to investigate the intricate relationship between gender inequality and limited access to fundamental agricultural resources such as land, seeds, fertilizer, credit, technology, and training, along with the ultimate impact on rural women's empowerment. Gender disparities in access to the agricultural modes of production are recognizing as an essential impediment to rural women's empowerment in Pakistan. The cross-sectional survey was conducted in research. A multistage sampling technique was used to take the sample from this study. The total sample size was 180 respondents. Data was collected through an Interview schedule by using a questionnaire. The statistical tool for social sciences, SPSS, was used to analyze the data. The data indicate that more than half women in the Gujranwala district of Pakistan do not have access to agricultural modes of production. Policy interventions should be prioritized by giving women fair access to land, seed, fertilizer, financing, technology, and training, as well as fighting against discriminatory practices.
