Women need policy support: Sheikh Hasina

Mar 09, 2015

Stressing on the need for equitable development, Bangladeshi Premier, Sheikh Hasina, called for policy support for women.

Dhaka: With the slogan "Women's empowerment is human development" the World Women's Day was observed this year in Bangladesh.

President Abdul Hamid and the Leader of the Opposition Rowshan Ershad, MP, in separate messages congratulated the women of the country and hoped they would reach greater heights in future.

Inaugurating the state functions in the morning, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said, "Because of the hard work, efficiency and sacrifice of the women of Bangladesh their position had been consolidated, nationally and internationally. Consequently there is a need for policy support for them if equitable development was to be ensured."

The day is observed to commemorate the movement of apparel manufacturing women workers of New York in 1910.
