Women

President Paul Biya is empowering women to attain equal rights with men. This entails increasing the number of actions geared towards promoting women’s entrepreneurship and helping women to find jobs in the civil service, the rural sector, trade, industry and service sector, pursue the process of modernizing our laws to guarantee respect for women’s rights, ensuring that customs and traditions repugnant to women’s rights are abandoned, stepping up measures aimed at fostering the intellectual and economic fulfillment of women and promoting family values. President Paul Biya has increased the number of women in decision making bodies in Cameroon, such as in ministries, in parastatal, in councils, at the parliament and in the senate.
