Take note Broumana: This is the right way to empower women and encourage them to join the municipal police. You don’t need to “sexualize” them by dressing them in sexy shorts in order to empower them.

The recruitments of females in Lebanon’s Municipal Police falls under a “new vision for Lebanon’s Municipal Police” developed by the Ministry of Interior and Municipalities (MoIM), with the support of UNDP. Out of Al Mina’s 21 newly recruited police agents, six are women which is something very new to the North as explained by Al Mina’s head of police Hussam Ibrahim.

I hope other municipalities will follow Al Mina’s example. Read the whole story [here].
