Selangor Women’s Development 2017: Remain inclusive, practice gender equality

SHAH ALAM, JAN 2: Women’s Development, especially in Selangor, remains inclusive and holistic in facing challenges ahead by enriching human values and creating a competitive environment.
Taman Medan Assemblyman Haniza Talha said the State Government created this framework for 2017 to ensure long-term benefits for this group.
“At this time, human resource development and knowledge acquisition are the most important mechanisms, particularly for women, to ensure societal continuity and prosperity.
“Woman empowerment as an asset in the human development of a nation should not be found only in government policies and principles alone.
“On the contrary, it needs to be translated through a consistent and comprehensive implementation,” she said in a statement.
She said Selangor’s administration is evidently implementing this through its principles of gender equality.
“We implemented it when we appointed two women Syariah Court Judges, making us the first state to do so.
“The same goes for the appointment of Noraida Mohd Yusof as Selangor State Development Corporation (PKNS) General Manager, on October 7,” she said.
The State Government in its commitment to uplift the institution of women and their status, has implemented new initiatives and principles in the 2017 Budget through the establishment of Empowered Women’s Institute with a budget of RM1 million.
