Rawalpindi: Speakers stressed the interventions by exposing women to knowledge, awareness of their rights, access to the available solutions and eliminating the vulnerability impacts of climate change.

They emphasized on the equality principles, continuous support and encouragement from men with their collective actions for the betterment of societies.

They stated this while addressing at a seminar on Women Empowerment to celebrate International Women Day, 2019 under the theme 'Balance for Better- better the balance, better the world' at Pir Mehr Ali Shah- Arid Agriculture University, Rawalpindi (PMAS-AAUR), here on Friday.

The seminar was organized by the PMAS-AAUR Directorate of Women Development in collaboration with International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICMOD) to enlighten the role of women in the society and the way forward to empower women through education, innovation and awareness.

Vice Chancellor PMAS-AAUR, Prof. Dr Nadeem Akhtar Abbasi said that Women in our societies are not economically supported by their men even that they are the other hand in building the nations. Women should be encouraged to perform their role for the society and we cannot be a developed country unless we stop neglecting their roles.
