State Minister reveals plans for women to lead SL’s military forces

Colombo (LNW): Defence State Minister Premitha Bandara Tennakoon today (05) announced plans for the government to empower women to lead the tri forces in the country.

Currently, women in Sri Lanka can only attain the rank of major, particularly in the army.

Accordingly, the government intends to amend military laws to facilitate the promotion of women, ultimately allowing them to head all three forces, Minister Tennakoon said.

Emphasising the historical roles women have played in Sri Lanka, Tennakoon stressed the need for greater efforts to ensure gender equality and equal status for women.
