Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain has shown us the way to advance the movement for the establishment of women’s human rights. The movement for the establishment of women’s human rights should be carried forward by following the path shown by him. Everyone including the young generation should come forward to strengthen the women’s movement.
On the occasion of International Women’s Day, World Human Rights Day and Rokeya Day, Bangladesh Women’s Parishad and BD Runners jointly organized a community run on December 9. Mahila Parishad president Fawzia Moslem said this at the ceremony at the Shaheed Minar premises after the community run from the central Shaheed Minar premises to Shahbagh.
Among the members of BD Runners, Zahidur Rahman Tushar, Kyau Sein Thai Dolly, Panshi Khan spoke in solidarity at the Shaheed Minar premises; Shah Alam Siddiqui and Ayesha Siddiqui.
Speakers in the event said that in our society, if there is any violence in the life of women, it is revealed very rarely. All must work together to prevent violence against women. A helping hand is needed to make a woman a successful runner. Never think ‘my way is over’ after giving birth. To create opportunities and environment for mothers to be involved in all activities.
