Legislation is always made with the goal for progress and ensuring equality in the society. Resultantly the laws take on the role of catalyst for social modifications. The current review is meant to know the relationship between regulation and social change in specific areas of women's empowerment, focusing on womenrelated laws in Pakistan from 2000 to 2015. The Karachi metropolis is nucleus of the qualitative review; utilizing the purposive sampling technique, twenty lawyers were interviewed who are pleading Civil, Family and Criminal matters in the Courts. The outcomes of such legislation were regarded as progressive. This important enactment process changed the social status of Pakistani women. Media and education, along with these laws, have been identified as factors driving change in women's groups. Our female population is less aware of the laws they support rather than create new laws or change existing ones. These laws must be strictly enforced.
