AMMONNEWS - Minister of State for Media Affairs, Amjad AdaIleh, said Jordan has the political will, led by His Majesty King Abdullah II, and a "great" resolve to support, empower Jordanian women in various fields.

During his meeting on Thursday with the Arab Women Organization of Jordan (AWO)'s president, members, Adaileh cited the recent decisions taken by the government to empower women.

In this context, he said the National Strategy for Women Empowerment 2020-2025 was approved, and the Ministerial Committee for Women Empowerment Directorate was "institutionalized" to become an active unit at the Prime Ministry.

The Jordanian women are "distinguished" in the media sector, with 25 percent women journalists working in the industry, Adaileh said, adding others have assumed leadership positions during the past years.

In turn, the President of the AWO in Jordan, Randa Qsous, reviewed the organization's steps in preparing a report on the Kingdom's gender equality situation, supported by the European Union Commission in Amman.
