She is productive

In Pakistan, of those aged 10 years & above, 50.9% are males and 49.1% are females. Yet, out of the total civilian labour force, 79.9% are males and only 20.1% are females. Out of the total number of employed persons, 80.5% are males and 19.5% are females.

Do you think the Pakistan government, and Pakistani society more widely, realises the productivity handicap they are carrying by failing to realise the contribution of about a quarter of their population?
