Speaker of the seminar was Mrs. Shazia Talles and Mrs. Mary Shahid shared their views on the topic and highlighted the importance of women and their role in the church. How the women were with Jesus in the crucifixion, regardless of their own lives, remained faithful to Jesus Christ until the end. And told how the women in the church were present with the disciples, in addition to their family responsibilities as well as their role in the church and Bible work. Explaining the role of women in the Bible, saying that women are important part of society, without them, the development of family, society and the church cannot be thought of.
