While addressing the Seminar Ms Rizwana Yasmin Advocate and Senior Vice President PLF, Secretary General Women Employees welfare Association (WEWA) and Director PLF Workers Education Center welcomed the participants and said thatThe United Nations' theme for International Women's Day "Women and men united to end violence against women and girls.” is very important and today in all over the world we are celebrating the Women’s Day but Unfortunately, women in our country still are facing deep violence in daily life they do not have many Rights to access get their own choice of living they do not have access to land or lack secure property Rights to the land. She said that this dearth makes women even more vulnerable to poverty.

Mr Waheed Ahmad Ch Advocate Legal Advisor PLF said that there is considerable evidence that Legislations have negatively impacted Pakistani women's lives and made them more vulnerable to extreme violence. He Said that the report of the Inquiry of the Commission for Women clearly stated that the Hudood Legislation must be repealed as it discriminates against women and is in conflict with their Fundamental Rights. He said that the Domestic violence occurs in forms of beatings, sexual violence or torture, mutilation, acid attacks and burning the victim alive.

Arian Haji Muhammad Saeed secretary General said that International Women's Day may be a day of Global celebration but there is no room for complacency as women continue to face inequity on many fronts. due to uneven socioeconomic Development and the impact of tribal, Feudal, and capitalist social formations on women's lives in Pakistan. He said that we have to prove the practcally solidatry with working women,s and gave them full reprentation in the main stream of PLF He said that Although women play an active role in Pakistan's economy, their contribution has been grossly underreported in some censuses and surveys. The  Labour Force Survey revealed that only about 26% of women aged 10 years and over were in the labour force. He said that Women's Empowerment for Social Justice and Social Justice for Women's Empowerment. For this, need to strengthening women rights we should struggle together. He said that Women are the suppressed and marginalized section of Pakistani society. But minority women are perhaps the most suppressed and worst victims of multiple discrimination in our society.

 To consolidate the issues of minorities’ women and project their demands, PLF Women Wing has taken up the cause of these women, developing the charter of demands of these women. In the light of this charter of demands, these women have come together under one platform to strive towards achieving their specific rights. With their commitment and courage, a movement named as “Women Rights Movement" was emerged. 

Mrs Atia Saleem Said that  The World Bank's reports  stated that women constituted only 28% of the country's Labor Force. Only twenty percent of Pakistani women participate in the formal sector of employment. However, the agricultural census stated that the women's participation rate in agriculture was 80%. She said that  The Pakistan Integrated Household Survey indicated that the female labour force participation rate was 45% in Rural Areas and 17% the urban areas.She said that  Pakistani women play a major role in agricultural production, livestock raising and cottage industries but they have no right to form their Trade Union and deprived from their Basic and Fundamental Rights.
