Founder President, Islamabad Women’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IWCCI) Samina Fazil, on Thursday said the third wave of coronavirus has pushed businesswomen to the wall.

In a statement issued here, she said that the government should announce a package for women as tall claims and announcements will never empower them.

Samina Fazil said that the pandemic is hitting men more than women but the later are facing its social and economic consequences more than men.

She said that the income, savings and assets of women are always less than men and they are less secured while the pandemic has widened this gulf.

Due to less income women are cannot withstand economic shocks as compared to men and they take more time for recovery therefore the government should not rely on statements do something concrete about it, the business leader added.
