Information and Broadcasting Secretary Shahera Shahid has called for countering social taboos associated with female folk and facilitating their mainstreaming.
In a video message on the occasion of International Women’s Day on Wednesday, she said that people will get used to working with women if they are integrated and all taboos will be removed gradually. She said this will also enable women to play their role vividly.
Secretary Information said that about 51 percent of Pakistan’s population consists of women and the majority should not be restricted to a limited space and they should be encouraged to participate in the country’s development.
