Women must be given equal opportunities
Johan Frisell, Swedish Ambassador in Dhaka, has said “Women must be given the same opportunities and rights so that they can play their role in society and contribute to the national economy in a big way.”
“In Bangladesh, only one third of the women can work (formal sector). If you can double that figure you’ll see a big boost for economic development,” he said.
The Ambassador made the remark in a video message marking the second anniversary of the ‘HeForShe’ campaign in Bangladesh on Monday, March 6th.
