Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said that it is not possible to reduce violence against women only through law. She says a change of mindset is needed.

The Prime Minister said this while attending the Begum Rokeya Day and Begum Rokeya Padak-2021 award ceremony from Gono Bhaban on Thursday, December 9 in the morning.

Sheikh Hasina said, "There will be obstacles in the way of women moving forward, but women will have to move forward on their own. Women are not objects of enjoyment, women are combatants.

Society has to move forward with this mentality. It is not possible to reduce violence against women through the law. In this case, a change of mindset is needed. It is more important than the law."
