The major objective of this research paper is to find out the role of patriarchal norms in constraining women political rights in Pukhtoon Society, of District Dir Lower, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa-Pakistan. Data was collected from 205 randomly selected voting age women from four selected villages of Dir Lower. The sampled respondents were interviewed on a pretested interview schedule covering both independent (patriarchal norms) and dependent (women political rights) variables. Chi-square test was used for testing the association between dependent study variables. Women political participation had a highly significant association with Patriarchy symbolizes in Pukhtoon society (p=0.000), gender inequality in Pukhtoon (p=0.000), disliking employment decisions by women (p=0.000), female decision-making at house hold level (p=0.000), existence of opportunities for women to bring positive change (p=0.000), women subordinate position to men (p=0.000) and deprivation of women rights (p=0.000). Implementation of verdicts of higher courts in ensuring women political rights were policy recommendations in light of study.
