ABSTRACT
Sexual, physical, psychological, economic or socio-cultural forms of violence are very common is Pakistani society, regardless of it being an urban or rural area. With family being the first place from where violence starts, the woman is often under threat especially where the reporting of crime is concerned. In order to effectively deal with the cases of violence against women and to provide adequate law enforcement response women police stations were established all over Pakistan in the year 1994. The purpose of establishing separate police stations in the country was to take necessary steps to combat violence against women and foster rule of law and to ensure women empowerment and their access to justice. Despite the lapse of 18 years, Women police station in Lahore has miserably failed in preventing and detecting crime involving women. The research is quantitative in nature and is based on statistical analysis. This report concludes that the Women Police station in Lahore has shown extremely poor performance in dealing with cases of violence against women. The solution to the problem is not complex. It requires professionalism, motivation and better training of women police officers which can enhance the performance of Women police Station in Lahore by many folds.
