The Government Of Pakistan Has A Ministry Of Women Development But No Minister Of Women Development

Couple of points.

First, please note that that our government's ministry is not the ministry of women's development, but the ministry of women development. I don't even have a joke for this one.

Second, please note the following from the ministry's "About" webpage:

Now, it's not unusual for political appointments to be unfilled for a while. But I think this government is really stretching the definition of "a while". Plus, it's the goddamn minister, and not some second or third tier bureaucrat we're talking about here.

Good times.

On a positive note, we could be thankful that there is indeed a minister to this ministry. For here, many things tend to stay to papers only. :D
