**Leveraging people, jihadi forces

The Vice President for Women and Family Affairs, for her part, said at this ceremony that extensive pathology has been done in the 13th government regarding bread-winning women, and barriers to attracting credit for the employment of these women are being overcome.

Khazali added that the motto of the 13th government is to help people's credibility and using from their own power for themselves, and in creating jobs for bread-winning women, the people and jihadi forces should also be used.

Announcing the finalization of the comprehensive program of empowerment of bread-winning women, she underlined that at the beginning of the sixth economic development plan there were 3 million and 500 thousand bread-winning women in the country, which we hope by the end of the seventh program we will not have any bread-winning women in the society that cannot provide their livelihoods.

The Vice President for Women and Family Affairs noted that one of the problems regarding the employment of bread-winning women was the limited number of job categories that have been resolved by the efforts of the Barakat Foundation.
