KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 3 2010 (Bernama) -- Women must continue to enhance and equip themselves with relevant and critical skills and knowledge to ensure they are competitive to take on the challenges brought about by technology and globalisation, the prime minister's wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor said today.

"There is a saying that the only constant in life is change and women should hold this as a mantra as they move on in life.

"Change is no longer a choice, but a requirement in order to keep with the quickly shifting times," she said at the KWAP Leadership Series talk on "Women and Leadership" here Wednesday.

"Let me reiterated that apart from some inherent specific biological roles, the significance of the traditional gender-based role was mostly based upon tragic misconception of women first and leader second.

"This notion has been well proven to be based on a false premise over the past century. I am of the view that men and women complement each other to make life more wholesome.

"I am on the same page with those who believe that it is simply a matter of personal choice; hence all barriers to that choice should rightly be removed," she said.

Rosmah said women should be bold enough to change their mindset and venture forth to a higher degree of success and be creative enough to do away with the norm and think outside of the box.

"They must seek opportunities to form strategic alliances, smart partnership and strong networking in order to strengthen their positions so that their voices will continue to be heard," she added.
