TEHRAN - Implementing a comprehensive plan aimed at empowering women heads of families is the priority of female members of the parliament, MP Soheila Jelodarzadeh said here on Saturday.
The number of women heads of families should be recorded in a data bank, the female MP said, adding, if the breadwinner women are recognized and supported, they will live a normal life.
Currently, a number of 2.5 million female heads of families are living in the country, IRNA quoted Jelodarzadeh as saying. These women need to be supported to keep them far from social vulnerabilities.
Although women are generally more vulnerable compared with men, breadwinner women are more subjected to social vulnerabilities since they should provide their families with means of livelihood, she noted.
Female members of the parliament will make any efforts to support these strata of the society through helping them remove their problems, she concluded.
