Speakers at the seminar said, all repression and abuse of women in our country is responsible for not establishing equal dignity of women, not to show respect to women’s work. So, first of all, it requires economical recognition of women’s household work. When women will become economically independent and self-reliant, then society will look into them in the eye of dignity. They said these while speaking at the seminar on “Role of Youth in equal dignity of Men and Women” held today at Auditorium -71 of Daffodil International University.

Addressing as the chief guest Ms. Shaheen Anam said, The main objective of our Liberation War was to build a society of equal dignity for Men and Women, But it’s a matter of great regret that after a long time of our independence, we could not build a discrimination-free society yet.
