Former Head of the UWI Center for Gender and Development Studies in St Augustine, Professor Rhoda Reddock, believes that not enough effort has been made to educate men on proper respect for women.
She says that men need to learn to value women in Trinidad and Tobago, since this forms the basis for most of the violence that is being perpetrated against the female gender.
Speaking this morning on the Power Breakfast Show on Power 102.1fm, in the wake of the latest domestic homicide, she articulated the necessity to treat with what she termed the negativism associated with women.
And while acknowledging the nomination of herself as a possible candidate for President of the Republic, Professor Reddock said she was not sure she is cut out for such a role. But she supports the movement to consider a woman as President.
Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley and Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar are scheduled to meet on Friday, to discuss nomination for election to the position of President.
President Anthony Carmona was sworn in as President on March 18, 2013. He five year term comes to an end in two months. And from all indications, he will not serve a second term.
