Globally, women are in the forefront of economic, social and political participation, and are taking even more challenging and unconventional roles; in the Corporate sector, as pilots, professional sportswomen, politicians etc. These opportunities are now emerging in Sri Lanka as well. Today, women play a critical role in the Sri Lankan economy and are the backbone of some of the most economically important sectors for the country – tea, garments, health, education and migrant workers. Therefore, it is timely that Sri Lankan women explores new, lucrative and challenging lead roles in line with the rest of the world. Young women who have not yet entered the workforce need to recognize that the sky is the limit with these new opportunities. But are our women in Sri Lanka ready to take on these opportunities? There needs to be a stronger support mechanism to help our women to come to the forefront. Fems, one of the leading Sanitary napkin Brands in Sri Lanka, has now come forward to support women in Sri Lanka and lend a helping hand. In that respect, Fems launched a new initiative; the Fems You’re Limitless Foundation was ceremoniously inaugurated recently at the University of Sri Jayawardenapura. The objectives of the foundation is to inspire, encourage and enable women of Sri Lanka to push past stereotypes and self-imposed limits to achieve their fullest potential.
