Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said that there was no space for women in our army, navy, air force, border guards anywhere, but now there is a place for our women everywhere and everyone of them is working very efficiently.
She said, “In our term, we made first Major General. Even though it is in medical service, our girls will make their place everywhere in the future.”
The Prime Minister said this at a discussion meeting organized on the occasion of International Women‘s Day 2019 in Bangabandhu International Conference Center (BICC) in the capital on Saturday.
Referring to the government creating opportunities for women everywhere, she said, “Once we saw discrimination against women. But now our girls do not just run planes, they have taken place everywhere. It has been possible because Bangabandhu had liberated the country.”
The Prime Minister said, “There are many people who want to keep captives women in the name of religion in the house. They opposed women education. One thing I want to say to them – that the Prophet Muhammad (Sm.) -the founder of Islam – life started under a businesswoman. Even for the honesty of the Prophet, Bibi Khadija married him.”
Meher Afroz Chumki, president of Parliamentary Standing Committee on Women and Children Affairs Ministry presided over the program.
On March 8, World Women’s Day was celebrated across the world through various programs.
