The purpose of this research is to find out ―The role of outdoor activities in the Individual Empowerment of Women in Pakistan: Male and Female perspectives.‖ Under the light of the views of the informants individual approach towards women empowerment with relation to outdoor education has been examined. This research has tried to answer the questions such as what impacts outdoor education has on women empowerment. What are the motivations and impediments for the women who get engaged in such learning? Other than the two chosen informants my own personal experiences have been woven throughout the study. One male outdoor educator and one female rock climber were interviewed. Their level of participation in outdoor activities was the main criteria. The design of the interviews was semi-structured allowing both informants to give maximum information. Data has been presented into main themes and has been analyzed hermeneutically acknowledging socio-cultural contexts. In the end the findings have been discussed and supported with literature, theory and my own experiences.
