Deputy Political Leader of the United National Congress says the Prime Minister’s golf course statement towards women is frightening.
Dr. Keith Rowley said “a golf course is like a woman, so you have to groom her every day otherwise it turns into a pasture” during his presentation at the budget debate last Friday.
His statements were made as he defended the Government’s decision to spend $3 million to upgrade the Chaguaramas Golf Course.
Speaking with News Power Now this morning, Deputy Political Leader of the UNC, Khadijah Ameen said such statements cannot be tolerated as policies implemented by the Government will affect how women are viewed in society.
Today the Deputy Political Leader is calling on the Speaker of the House to take urgent action against the Prime Minister’s statements.
She is also urging women to stand together when derogatory statements are made in the public domain.
