In its true spirit, it caters to all the principles of equality.

Protective legislation can often result in being discriminatory to women and female advocates in Lahore Pakistan, as has particularly been discussed under the chapter on labor laws. At times an initiative is taken as an affirmative action but its effect could be discriminatory. For example in certain areas quotas may be fixed for females to promote gender equality, but if more of the women begin to qualify for the quota on merit, that quota system will become a restraint rather than a facility. Secondly, in the clause "There shall be no discrimination on the basis of sex alone, the word alone is unnecessary. It suggests that sex, if coupled with some other factor may provide Justification for discrimination. It may also be noted that in the cultural and social context of Pakistan the word "protection" in clause (3) has the potential for a rigid and conservative interpretation which may even be considered to justify barricading of women.
