Where is the PNP’s women movement ?

I now take aim at the once vocal PNP women movement, which between 2007 and 2011 issued a number of press releases on a number of topical issues.

Let’s brief;y examine some of these issues.

PNP women’s Movement outraged over cost of FINSAC Enquiry – Jan 20, 2010.

In a statement issued Tuesday, President of the Women’s Movement, Jennifer Edwards expressed outrage over what she termed the government’s obvious double standard in how it spends the country’s limited resources.

PNP Women’s Movement calls on authorities to respond to report of woman violated by Barbadian Immigration – March 24, 2011

President of the PNP Women’s Movement, Jennifer Edwards, said the group is of the view that the account given by the alleged victim is sufficiently disturbing and appalling that it requires what she calls an immediate and clear response from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade.

Go Now, PM – May 20, 2010

PNP Women’s Movement

“The Women’s Movement is of the strong view that the prime minister has lost any moral authority to lead the campaign for responsible, accountable and transparent government and must do the decent thing and resign with immediate effect.”

Fast forward to 2012 – 2014  have we heard any word from the PNP women’s moved. Let’s examine a few cases.

What did the PNP women’s movement say about this kind of a thing in 2010, well…

Jennifer Edwards expressed outrage over what she termed the government’s obvious double standard in how it spends the country’s limited resources.

Now folks you tell me, can we really take these folks seriously, do they really care about Jamaica or is it all about their own interest.

So, who is looking after the interest of you and I ???

  1. What is more shocking is that the PNP female senators all sat in the senate and said nothing. Some even claimed to not hear anything even though they were closer to Mr. Nicholson than the JLP senators were.

    I even saw Lambert Brown dismissing the whole incident but if an opposition member had said that while the PM was speaking he would’ve been the first one with pitch fork to lynch that person.

  2. The pnp does not care about gender equality, its just a buzzword. Just look at the two female mayors who were booted
