JOHOR BAHARU – Industry players should fix job quotas for women in their respective organisations to ensure they continue to be active and to spur national development.
Pulai Member of Parliament, and Public Accounts Committee chairman, Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed said fixing quotas in performing numerous jobs by those in the private or public sectors, would also dispel perceptions of prejudice against women.
“It is a good way to ensure the continuous contribution of women in national development.
“Furthermore, currently, most students at higher institutions of learning are women,” he said in his speech during tea in conjunction with the International Woman’s Day celebration organised by the Johor Women’s League (Jewel), here.
The Women, Family and Community Development Ministry prior to this targeted 30 per cent of women’s participation at the decision-making level in all fields by 2016.
Earlier, during the function, Nur Jazlan also handed a contribution of RM10,000 to Jewel. – BERNAMA
