The aim of this study is to critically analyze the social issues and challenges of sportswomen in Pakistan.

The interview schedule is utilized as a tool where 210 sportswomen were approached and had structured and unstructured interviews for having knowledge about their personal qualities and skills of sportswomen. The results of this study highlights that due to social norms, values, customs, culture, myths, traditions, unstable economic conditions and erroneous religious women outlook are not able to participate in sports activities while, sports activities can provide a channel to educate women about their communal, legal and physical rights along with productive and reproductive rights.
