He also supported the decision to allocate separate quota for the women in different important fields which will also improve the gender equality situation.

Talking to the business community, the veteran business leader that women are almost 51 percent of the population which must be included in the national mainstream through a comprehensive policy.

Mian Zahid Hussain said that Constitution guarantees the protection of the right of the women but it is not practiced as required.

The former minister noted that the government, as well as the private sector, should encourage and empower women to ensure sustainable national development.

The issues barring the women from development should be addressed on a priority basis as they are facing problems like financing, discrimination, and exploitation by the middlemen.
