Female immobility is a major hurdle towards women empowerment in Pakistan. It is a pushing factor in widening the economic gap and increasing gender inequality. SRU introduced the Women-on-Wheels – WoW – campaign to empower women by providing them with the necessary skill-set and the means to increase their mobility and independence through the provision of free motorcycle lessons.
The purpose of the WoW campaign is to demonstrate that women have an equal right and access to public spaces as men. Furthermore, through WoW, the Government of Punjab aims to change mindsets and serves to create awareness regarding street violence and harassment that millions of Pakistani women face when they step out of their homes.
WOW SUBSIDIZED MOTORCYCLE SCHEME:
As a further step, the campaign will provide subsidized customized motorbikes for the Women-on-Wheels graduates through an open balloting mechanism. The WoW initiative has provided free motorcycle trainings to over 3000 women across the socio-economic spectrum.
