LAHORE, Mar 08 (APP): Additional Chief Secretary Iram Bukhari on Monday said the government had taken several steps to empower women.
She said this while presiding over a panel discussion on equal opportunities for women and achieving an equal future in the COVID-19 World, organized by the Women Development Department on the International Women’s Day. Additional Chief Secretary Irum Bukhari said that currently, a large number of women officers were appointed on administrative positions, which was a testament to the government’s policies to empower women.
She said that the role of women was very important for economic stability in Pakistan as only socially balanced societies were always moving towards development. Speaking on International Women’s Day, she said, “I want to convey my message not only to women but to men also that this day is not a day to bash men. It is about women’s empowerment.”
She mentioned that men also contributed to the development of women because it was the brother, the father, the husband and the son who allowed them to work with confidence.
