Women enjoying full rights in Pakistan, working in all departments: Bilawal PDF Print E-mail
WASHINGTON, May 25 (APP): Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Friday said Pakistan is one of the leading countries in the world where women are working in all the departments and enjoying equal rights with men. Addressing a luncheon discussion hosted by United States Institute of Peace (USIP) here, Bilawal said, the PPP government took a number of steps for the empowerment of the women and now they are working in various fields with hounour and dignity.
Bilawal said, “I am proud of the PPP government for passing the most legislation in favor of women than all the governments in the past.”
“I am proud we made history with first female Prime Minister of Islamic world, first female foreign minister of Pakistan and first female Speaker of National Assembly,” he added.
The Chairman PPP said, “We have one of the largest representation of women amongst our legislators compared to other countries in our region.”
Bilawal said, “It is my dream that in my life time our parliament will be composed of 50% women and cabinet will have 50% women.”
Speaking on the issue of extremism in Pakistan, Chairman PPP asked why should the face of Pakistan be Osama Bin Laden.
He emphasized that the face of Pakistan should be Shaheed Mohatarma Benazir Bhutto who fought for the peaceful message of Islam, for a peaceful prosperous and progressive Pakistan.
He said “Pakistan is not just the caricature you see on TV, when I met one of the victims of the NATO attack on Salala base, his family was proud that their son died fighting for his country, but they were also proud he was fighting the extremists in KPK, the extremists who had killed their leader Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto.”
Besides Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Begum Sanam Bhutto,  Tim Lenderking, ambassador Robin Raphel, ambassador Melanne Verveer, Secretary Robert Blake, Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, Moeed Yusuf, Fatema Sumar, Acting President of USIP and several other speakers spoke at the luncheon.
USIP is the independent, nonpartisan conflict management center created by Congress to prevent and mitigate international conflict without resorting to violence. The USIP works to save lives, increase the government’s ability to deal with conflicts before they escalate, reduce government costs, and enhance national security.
USIP’s Pakistan program remains focused on supporting policy-relevant analytical work that contributes to greater understanding of conflict and peace dynamics in Pakistan.
The Institute’s programmatic work helps support initiatives that promote tolerance and prevent and mitigate violent extremism and conflict.
