Fatima Jinnah College for Women

Fatima Jinnah College for Women, Fawara Chowk, Gujrat, has the distinction of being the first institution to start education at the graduation level for women between Lahore and Rawalpindi. Established in 1949 as girls’ section of Zamindar College, it became an independent college on 21 March 1951 when Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah performed its inauguration ceremony. It was then named as Fatima Jinnah College. The Punjab Government took over its control in 1952 and named it as Government College for Women, but it was again renamed as the Fatima Jinnah College for Women, Fawara Chowk, Gujrat, in 2003.
