Need to ensure suitable environ for working women



Federal Minister Law and Justice Senator Azam Nazeer Tarar on Monday said that it was necessary to provide a proper work environment to women with zero tolerance for discrimination, fear and harassment. He stated this while addressing the inaugural session of the National Women Police Conference organized by the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) and the Parliamentarians Commission for Human Rights (PCHR) under the theme of “Inspire, Empower, and Transform.”

The law minister said that policing for women or by women was a need of the hour, adding that nothing including law and religion stops women from playing an active and productive role in a profession of their choice.

He said that the legislation could give benefit only when the law was implemented in letter and spirit.
