DWBF stresses women empowerment thru entrepreneurship

  • Published at 05:02 pm July 8th, 2013
Barisal unit of District Women Business Forum held its first annual conference yesterday laying emphasis on women empowerment through developing entrepreneurship.   Dr Banolata Murshida president of DWBF chaired the function while the Forum’s secretary Rebeka Sultana presented an annual report.   A number of women entrepreneurs addressed the conference.   They said women entrepreneurs could play a vital role by directly responding to government’s poverty reduction strategies, if they were provided with budget support.    Like other countries, Bangladeshi women too face social, economic and institutional barriers while making decisions both in household and society.   They have fewer opportunities to make political representation, influence policymaking and hold the state responsible to meet their demands, said the speakers.   They said the Millennium Development Goals make the governments committed to promote inclusive politics irrespective of gender.   They called upon the government to provide funds, training, mentoring and advisory services for women entrepreneurs to create confidence necessary to influence decisions in the public arena and empowerment.   Later in the conference, DWBF formed a new nine-member executive committee for the term of 2013-15.   Prof Shah Sajeda acted as election commissioner.   Dr Banolata Murshida and Rebeka Sultana reelected as president and secretary respectively, while Hasina Begum was elected as vice president, Sabina Yasmin assistant secretary, Maksuda Khanam finance secretary, Sumaiya Jahan Munni organising secretary, Parvin Afroz information and communication secretary, Tahmina Morshed office secretary and Ismat Farhana Shimu executive member.
