The Women’s Arm of the United National Congress has expressed outraged at recent comments made by the Leader of the
Opposition in reference to the Prime Minister at the PNM’s meeting in Brazil on Tuesday night.
The UNC Women’s Arm said Dr. Rowley not only insulted the Prime Minister but all women of the country by the offensive language used.
In a media release issued this morning, the Women’s Arm said they were extremely disappointed.
They stated that they felt that women were being degraded in a distasteful manner.
The Opposition Leader’s comments come mere days after celebrating International Women’s Day, which highlighted the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action.
Chairman, UNC Women’s Arm, Stacy Roopnarine said that Dr. Rowley had no respect for women.
The UNC Women’s Arm has called on the PNM Women’s League to stand up for the rights of women in this country.
Efforts to contact the PNM Women’s Arm Chairperson, Camille Robinson-Regis for comment were futile.
