The Central Regional Women Organizer of the New Patroitic Party(NPP) Hon Charllote Adjoa Antwi has added his voice to a number of Ghanaians who are speaking against the showing of placards in parliament with inscriptions Bloody Widow.
According to her ,
The events of Tuesday, 5th Febuary, 2019, casts doubt on the commitment of the Minority to the progress of women and towards ensuring the protection of women from domestic violence, Intimidation, discrimination and sexual harassment in the workplace; Inequality in the labour market; human trafficking; Child abuse and many other acts of injustice.
If women who engage in politics are lampooned in the way and manner witnessed in Parliament on Tuesday, then no number of safe seats would be sufficient in improving the dwindling fortunes of female politicians.
As the leader for Central regional women’s wing of NPP , which i have worked with women and young persons for over one year , I see the events of Tuesday as a wicked attempt to undo the progress we have made so far in increasing women’s participation in politics and ultimately in national development .
I call on the leadership of the NDC to do what is honourable by apologising to Ghanaians generally and specifically, to the Hon. Seyram Lydia Alhassan and the good people of Ayawaso West Wuogon.
For the legislative arm of government (Parliament House ) to be taken seriously by Ghanaians, foremost, it should exhibit that it takes itself serious.
Forces of Women Empowerment, Arise Now !!!
God Bless Women in Ghana and across the world.
God Bless Our Homeland Ghana.
