HerNet will wholeheartedly support and inspire you. Even more, you will receive unconditional support to spread your words through your pen, and we are always supporting the fighters like you. It is noteworthy that apart from working for the betterment of women, children, and the transgender community, HerNet has arranged many events this year in which women empowerment has been the major issue."
The secretary of Bangladesh Nari Sangbadik Samiti Nasima Soma said in her statement that after the arrival of our present government in power, women have occupied the topmost positions in numerous sectors. The speaker of our parliament, leader of the parliament, leader of the opposition party, parliamentary sub-leaders all are women. Moreover, the number of female journalists has increased and this is the biggest achievement of Bangladesh. However, barriers and constrictions have been present there and will be here. For this reason, we should not stop making endeavors. The female journalists are working bravely amidst various hostilities and they are not in the least fearful. After managing the household works, women are smartly managing their careers. Though people used to view the profession of journalism negatively, there has been a massive change in the perspectives of people. In this case, if the female workers get empathetic and constructive support from their male colleagues, their difficult journey will be smoother. Moreover, she added that she will always work dedicatedly for the empowerment of female journalists.
All female journalists express their experience in this profession one by one.
