1st international conference on women entrepreneurship concludes

The speakers of the concluding session of 1st international conference on women entrepreneurship have emphasized the importance of empowering women and called for removal of barriers and restraints that prevent their advancement in education and growth in various sectors, particularly in Sindh’s rural areas. They said women should work collectively for their rights and empowerment and the provincial government must extend its full cooperation in ensuring females’ success while men should also allow female members of their families to work for their empowerment. The 1st International Conference on “Women Entrepreneurship: Challenges and Opportunities” organized by Sindh University’s Technology Incubation Center (TIC) at the Faculty of Engineering and Technology was concluded on Thursday.

The Dean Faculty of Engineering and Technology (FET) Prof. Dr. Khalil ur Rehman Khoumbhati told the audience that the provincial assembly had enacted certain laws to address issues relating to womenfolk but these legislation were not being implemented in letter and spirits. He said that the laws addressed the issues like marital abuse, honor-killing and forced conversion of minority women; therefore, he said the government must come forward to ensuring implementation on the legislation.
