The report said 56 women were killed for giving birth to a girl rather than a boy.
"Young girls are being raped in Pakistan and all we do is shout rather than doing something practical," Rehman said earlier this week.
He said that giving girls and boys equal access to education and introducing a uniform education system for the rich and the poor would bring about positive changes in Pakistan.

"It has taken us 62 years to say that education is a basic right," he said. Ruling PML-N parliamentarian Hina Pervez said that the Punjab Assembly would soon pass the Punjab Protection of Family Members from Violence Bill.
