SPSS 20, was used for univariate and bivariate analysis, applying chi-square test for possible association. This study revealed that social structure has a phenomenal role in women’s least participation in politics in Pakhtun Society. Inferences of the statistics discovered that the main cultural hindrances to women’s political participation include: lack of power and authority; stereotypical image; heavy domestic burdens; strong patriarchy; lack of women’s choices; women’s association with family honor. On the basis of the findings, this study recommends the role of civil Society in highlighting the significance of women’s participation in politics.
