Help rural women come forward: Chumki

UNB

State Minister for Women and Children Affairs Meher Afroj Chumki on Tuesday said everyone has to work to bring the rural women who are lag behind forward for attaining further economic and social progresses, reports UNB. ‘The country has achieved a significant progress in the field of women empowerment but we need to work for the development and advancement of our rural women who are lag behind’ she said while addressing a human chain programme formed in front of the National Press Club in the capital. The Ministry of Women and Children Affairs, Department of Women Affairs, many other Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) and women platforms jointly formed the human chain on the occasion of the International Women's Day to be observed on March 8.

The theme of this year's Women Day is ‘Somoy Ekhon Narir; Unnoyone Tara, Bodle Jasche Grame-Shohore Karmo Jibon Dhara'. Chumki also said this year they will put special concentration on advancement of rural women. The secretary of the ministry, Nasima Begum, NDC, said, “I urge the male part of the society to be respectful towards the female and help them come forward.” Many others, including Joyeeta Foundation managing director Md Asraf Hossain, women leaders from different NGOs addressed the human chain.
