Sincere efforts on to make women self-sufficient: Ayesha


Ayesha Balighur Rehman, the wife of Punjab Governor Balighur Rehman, said on Tuesday that serious and sincere efforts were under way to make Pakistani women self-sufficient.

Addressing a seminar, jointly organised by the Unique Group of Institutions (UGI) and the Pakistan Girls Guide Association here, she said the day was not far away when Pakistani women would make a name for themselves not only at national but international levels.

She said since creation of Pakistan, women had been active in all fields of life and they had proved their mettle through their untiring struggle. She said Pakistani women were serving the nation by joining Pak armed and law-enforcement forces; they were bringing good name to the country in sports and they were producing great works in fine arts, etc.

Ayesha Balighur Rehman said protection of women rights was top priority of the government. She said that more schools were being opened for promotion of education among girls. She appreciated the UGI for inculcating the girls guide movement objectives in its female students.
