The UNC National Women’s Arm continues to express it’s distaste towards the continued disrespectful and downright demeaning remarks towards women by the Prime Minister of this country. Following his improper description of the Opposition Leader Mrs Kamla Persad Bissessar as “Jammettry” he has now continued on to liken a woman’s person to that of “Pastures which need regular grooming” and similar to that of a “Golf course” the innuendos once more continues to degrade women and the sexist undertones are quite noted.
Once more the UNC National Women’s Arm calls for an apology from the Prime Minister to all the women of Trinidad and Tobago , it will no longer be tolerated and it is very unacceptable to degrade women who contribute to this society in major ways. The women of today are strong and courageous women we will stand up against sexism and the apparent misogynistic tendencies of this present Prime Minister.
We continue to work towards the empowerment of women and continue to fight against atrocities meted out to them, to the Prime Minister of this country we are calling for an immediate and sincere apology! Respect our women!
