(TAP) - On National Women's Day, President Kais Saied made Thursday a dawn visit to Mraïdeya, delegation of Bousselem (governorate of Jendouba) where he met with locals, notably female farm workers.

Saied took cognisance of the concerns of female agricultural labourers and their daily challenges of transport hazards, poor wages and school dropout, in addition to the dilapidation of dwellings, reads a Presidency press release.

The Head of the State said there is need to bolster the economic and social rights of women in rural and urban areas. Laws in force, though important, are still disconnected from reality and a review is required, he further said.
