Srinagar: National Conference Women's Wing President Shameema Firdous on Monday said NC has always been on the frontline in the struggle to ensure women’s safety, security, representation, empowerment, and equality.
She made these comments while welcoming scores of women from Srinagar areas into JKNC at Nawa-e-Subha, Srinagar. Provincial President women's wing Er Sabiya Qadri, Senior women's wing leader Aisha Jameel, District President Kupwara Mehmooda Ji, Rabiya Wani were also present on the occasion. The joining programme was organised by Sabiya Qadri.
In her address, Shameema Firdous said that women have a larger role to play in politics. “NC has long ago recognised women's voices and involved them in decision making at all levels.
There are a lot more women leaders in our party now. We need women's touch to political decisions to have resultant policies more attuned to the needs of our daughters, mothers, and sisters in urban as well as rural areas,” she said adding, “It is elevating to see educated women join us in rows from different walks of life. I hope that the new joining will help us actualise the progressive vision of Madre Meharban.”
