Women play major role in country’s progress - President

My administration is committed to creating a platform where Sri Lankan women can contribute to the betterment of our society as equal players, President Gotabaya Rajapaksa stated in a message issued to mark the International Women’s Day that falls tomorrow (March 8).

“We will provide an environment where women will make their own decisions and will be free to reach their aspirations,” the President’s message said.

The message: “We have a deep sense of gratitude over the contribution made by women who make up half of humanity and act as a decisive force in the existence and progress of the social establishment of any country.

“As a Nation we salute our women. This is attested by social indicators such as literacy rate,’ social inclusion and life expectancy,

where Sri Lankan women are on par with those of the developed countries. I am also very proud of the many achievements and the victories gained by Sri Lankan women who have done our country proud. She shall not be subject to any violence or discrimination against her.

“This year’s International Women’s Day themed, “Woman’s Courage – Nation’s Strength” has my complete support and I wish it every success”.
