Have to believe that women also can; says Speaker


Staff Correspondent: Speaker of the Jatiya Sangsad Dr Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury said when a woman comes in charge, she has to bring many burdens to her head. It gives too many negative messages in the society if she fails to perform her duties. So, we should have beliefs that women can and of course, they have ability.

Speaker came up with the observation while speaking at a discussion and award giving programme at Dhaka Reporters Unity (DRU) in the capital on Tuesday.

The programme with title “Women and Work Place in Media” was arranged on the occasion of International Women Day.

Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury said Bangladesh is the brightest example in the world in empowering women. And there is only one way for women that is to move forward. Bangladesh will go forward through our progress.

She also urged policymakers to be more cautious so that women stepped in journalism do not retreat from their way.
