Q1. The issue is because of unemployment due to high population. As men have job problems so it is very difficult for women to find jobs in rural areas and therefore women are ignored. The second issue is because of religion i.e. in Islam women are not allowed to move freely in the society like men. In urban areas however due to more education and more jobs opportunities women face less or no problems as compared to rural women. Jobs for rural women is most important otherwise no success.

Q2. I do not agree the approaches and policies are ok for every region in the world. I means different policies and approaches are required for different regions, different countries and different religions.

Q3. Education in rural areas for women. Jobs in rural areas especially for women. The religious scholars can play a huge role to give importance to women in rural areas, etc.
