The pioneer of women’s empowerment, Sheikh Hasina.

March 8 is International Women’s Day. Since 1977, the United Nations has been observing March 8 as International Women’s Day. Like other countries in the world, Bangladesh also observes this day with due respect. The theme for this year’s Women’s Day is ‘Empower Women, Advance Investment.’

In the poem “Nari” (Woman) by the national poet Kazi Nazrul Islam, it is said, “Whatsoever great creations exist in the world, half of those have been done by women, and half by men.” It is not possible for any nation to achieve overall development without empowering women, who represent half of the population.

After assuming office as the Prime Minister in 2009, Bangabandhu’s daughter Sheikh Hasina initiated extensive programs aimed at establishing the true dignity of women. As a result, women are now playing significant roles in social, economic, political, and administrative spheres.

Article 19(3) of the Constitution of Bangladesh talks about ensuring the participation and equality of opportunities for women at all levels of national life. The government led by Sheikh Hasina has actively implemented equal rights for men and women. Adding the mother’s name along with the father’s name in identifying children is a significant milestone in women’s dignity. In every aspect of politics, diplomacy, rule of law, business, and commerce, women are progressively advancing. In villages or cities, women are moving forward hand in hand with men.
