Minister praises work of women at home

Minister with responsibility for External Affairs, Sarah Flood-Beaubrun, has paid tribute to the work that women do in the home, asserting that it is of equal value to the work that females do in the public sphere.

She told reporters on Monday it appears that the work women do in the home is considered less valuable and not as important.

“Whereas women will make their choices – in my case I have chosen public life;  but I consider myself as having two careers – that of mother in the home and a person in public life,” Flood-Beaubrun said.

According to her, both are equally important and valuable.

“We should support governments and policies and agencies should support women in the choices they make regarding that,” the minister said.

She declared that women should not have to feel that they have to make it ‘out there’.

Flood-Beaubrun and Minister for Education, Innovation, Gender Relations and Sustainable Development, Doctor Gale Rigobert, attended the 61st Commission on the Status of Women which was held at the United Nations.

Both were invited to speak on the subject of accounting for the work of mothers.

Rigobert told reporters:

“Traditionally and historically our social and economic indices  have not accounted for or reflected the work that mothers do in caring, nurturing and raising children.”

She told said that in her presentation overseas, she thanked those in attendance and encouraged them to continue advocating for the dismantling of the theoretical framework that has to date, failed to adequately account for the ‘herculean’ effort of women and mothers in particular.

“That advocacy is critical,” Rigobert explained.

      No way because a lot of Lucian’s like too much damn freeness. Always waiting on governments for handouts. Get up and work for your needs. The only people I’ll have mercy for is disabled people. The number of able bodied people that lining up for social assistance every month is astounding.

    With all due respect, I as a son, a man and a father has great respect for women who work at home. That’s the turfest job ever. There’s no computer,no assistant or none like that to help women at home but those women always get the job done perfectly. The house is clean, children are fed and sent to school, food is cooked and best of all it taste so delicious makes you want to eat the entire pot. Great respect to the women with those qualities.
