Gurez , a picturesque place know for its world class beauty has immense resources. But the distance from urban hub and tough terrain makes its people face many hardships  . But human resource of Gurez especially its women are shinning in all fields .

The Women of Gurez are doing wonderful work among hardships . In the remote areas of Gurez women can be doing all the tough work including cutting of essential wood and moving the cattle herd. On the darker side, though men especially in far flung of areas do very less tough work in Gurez.

  The education lamp is spreading fast in

 Gurez and it’s adjoining Tulail area among women, with women willing to move out to urban hub of Srinagar for higher education.  The fruits of education are now visible on ground with many women officials having roots from Gurez serving in different parts of the Kashmir including Gurez .

The realities despite many challenges look bright for women of Gurez . Government has to take many measures especially increasing  the horizon of  health and education facilities to make Gurez women life more comfortable .
