Angola's minister of Environment, Fátima Jardim, considered that women are example of perseverance and self-improvement, taking into account their participation in the great deeds of the country and pacification of minds, ANGOP has learnt.

Her opinion was given on Wednesday, on the fringes of a talk dubbed "Role of Angolan Women in Society", promoted by the ruling MPLA party's female wing (OMA), adding that this social class has been fighting in a noticeable way for the emancipation of minds, contributing to the development of the society.

Fátima Jardim, said that in spite of the deeds in the political and economic sectors, the challenge is still great, therefore women want to reach other levels, to contribute, at the same dimension as men, to the materialisation of a better living standard of the citizens.

The minister also said that efforts are being made towards women education, in order to reduce the rates of illiteracy and provide a better participation of the women in the social and economic life, so that in a larger and deeper way, they can work for the development of society.
