ISLAMABAD: President Dr Arif Alvi has emphasized on women empowerment through better health and education, hereditary rights and financial independence.

Addressing a ceremony in connection with International Women's Day here on Monday, he said the present government has passed several laws to empower women.

The President said although laws for women rights existed in the country, however, they were not being implemented. He said the current government is taking steps to ensure their implementation, including the law of hereditary rights of women.

Underlining the importance of financial independence of women, the President said the government has started a program in which banks are offering loan up to five million rupees to a woman entrepreneur. Under the PTI government's Ehsaas program as well, he said, most of the funds are being disbursed among women.

Dr Arif Alvi said a Telehealth system should be developed under which women can consult doctors and seek basic advice through telephone. He also stressed on reducing the female dropout level in education as well as employment.

The President urged the media not to show women being subjected to violence in dramas. He said instead of highlighting the negative cultural perceptions about women, the rights given to women in Islam should be projected. He said Ulema also have a pivotal role to play in this regard.
