Women had been one of the ignored servants in the countries of South Asia. Being critical a part of the society thru performing critical position in her own circle of relatives such as in their homes and different additives of lifestyles women haven’t were given the due popularity, probable due to reason of their smaller/disregarded monetary autonomy, giving preferences to son, particularly in their own circle of relatives/distinctive responsibilities and imposed cultural regulations. The objective of this study was to find out the status of women in Balochistan and highlighted the issues of parda, education, marriage and domestic life. The results showed that Balochistani women have a position that differs from that of women living in Western countries in many ways. The organization of Balochistani society is based on gender. This creates inequities in a wide range of women's lives and causes girls to suffer greatly. In most underdeveloped countries, this has disastrous implications. Due to a lack of parity in giving education to girls, Balochistan faces negative implications in terms of health, poverty, and reproduction concerns. Several factors influence women's status in Balochistani society. It was concluded that women are, in generally, a marginalized group in society, particularly in rural Baluchistan. One unmistakable fact is that her role is being undercut on so many levels that she is deeply upset and dissatisfied.
