Addressing the conference as a chief guest, Speaker National Assembly Raja Pervez Ashraf said women empowerment is inevitable for progress of the country.

The Speaker lauded the active role of women parliamentarians in parliamentary business. Speaking on the occasion, women parliamentarians, representatives of federal and provincial caucuses called for maximum women participation at all levels in the general elections.

They also emphasized on creating an enabling environment for women in all fields.
