Women rights imperative for progressive society: Sardar Ayaz Sadiq

ISLAMABAD, Mar 07 (INP): Speaker National Assembly Sardar Ayaz Sadiq on Wednesday said that the role of women was very important in prosperity and progress of every society but it was unfortunate that women around the globe were abused, harassed, marginalized and were compelled to live a miserable life under constant shadow of violence, discrimination and poverty.

He stressed upon the world community for collective efforts and better legislation to protect women rights. He expressed these view in his message on International Women day being commemorated throughout the world on Wednesday.
