CASTRIES, Saint Lucia –Tuesday, May 10, 2016 – Drawing on years of experience in the participation of women in politics, “Women in Action – WIA” has operated as democracy practitioners helping to develop and carry out effective programs to bring more women into government and politics.
In the modern world, women’s empowerment is not merely a goal, but a cornerstone of democratic growth. This is because women raise issues that are sometimes overlooked, devote energy to projects that might otherwise be ignored, reach out to constituencies that are often neglected and help societies move forward together.
On Saturday, 14th May, 2016 the United Workers’ Party Women’s Arm “Women in Action – WIA” will host its Women’s Conference at the Marchand Combined School at 3:00 p.m. The Conference will elect a new National Executive from members in good-standing in a closed-door session. All paid up members are invited to attend.
The new National Executive of WIA, duly elected at Saturday’s Conference will be presented at the national public meeting scheduled for Sunday, 15th May, 2016 at the Entrepot Playing Field (Near Entrepot Secondary School) at 6:00 p.m. The newly elected President is scheduled to make a short address at Sunday’s event. At this meeting the Party will officially launch one of its female candidates, Mrs. Cathelina Fortuna Belrose, candidate for Castries East.
