After a four-decade-long struggle for women’s rights, Dr Fouzia Saeed received the “Battle of Crete Award” by the Washington Oxi Day Foundation for her commendable work in the field.
In an award ceremony held at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel, US Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women’s Issues Melanne Vervee lauded Saeed’s struggle for women rights, saying she had set an example of courage and commitment to women’s advancement.
The social activist while addressing the audience acknowledged the support she had received from her country and said, “While the United Nations has made some efforts to change its work environment, I am proud of my country for recognising this scourge. I am proud of my parliament for making two laws to make sexual harassment a crime and I am proud of my federal and provincial Governments for implementing it.”
