DNCW celebrates 25 years

The Dominica National Council of Women (DNCW), under the helm of Mrs. Josephine Dublin-Prince, will congregate at the Sts. Joachim and Ann’s (Patrons of the Family) Church to celebrate the organization’s 25th anniversary, under the theme: “DNCW: 25 Years and Moving On, Together We Strive, Together We Achieve!”

This silver Jubilee celebration will be held on Sunday, 28 August, 2011, and is expected to begin at 4:00 pm.

Politicians, welfare and social workers and all concerned with the struggle of gender equality are expected to join the Dominica National Council of Women (DNCW) to observe this milestone of building the “Family” the foundation of any society.

Indeed, this is a moment for “reminiscing the past, embracing the present and looking forward to the future”, as being promoted by the Massacre Heritage Council.

    A genuine question to DNO? Anything wrong with a comment suggesting that women should continue the fight for their economic, social/cultural, and political rights?

    An observation. If ones comments do not reflect the views and opinions of DNO’s management and staff,even though the comments are not libellious, derogatory, but with constructive legal insights and criticisms, would such comments not be posted? All ideas should contend.

    Women have struggled consistently, even died fighting for their rights to vote. Women all over the world have fought alongside their male counterparts for freedom, equality, for justice. They have fought against exploitation, corruption and against all kinds of abuses.

    It is strange that the voices of our Dominican women are not as loud today. DNCW and our women in general have been mute with regards to advocating for FREE and FAIR Elections to strenthen our democratic process. No word from DNCW regarding the cleaning of the Voters’ list and the need for VOTER ID cards. DNCW must give support to the Electoral Commission in its quest for Electoral reform. DNCW must remember the years of struggle for the right for women to vote. DNCW must never forget the DECADES OF FIGHTING AGAINST CORRUPTION and bad Governance.

    DNCW and women in general in Dominica seem to be afraid to advocate on issues affecting women in Dominica today. WHY? Is it because they do not want to condemn anything wrong by authorities or they fear victimization, ridicule or are so sympathetic with the ruling DLP Party that even when there is massive corruption and all kinds of abuses against women, rising unemployment especially among women, they say nothing?

    Dominican Women rise up. It’s WOMAN TIME to SPEAK OUT against Govt. refusal to implement Electoral Reform. It’s WOMAN TIME to RENEW the fight for freedom, free and fair elections, equality and justice. It’s WOMAN TIME.

    THEY DRAW A LIVING JUST BY BEING ADVOCATES.

    THAT IS THE ROLE THEIR SPONSORS TRAINED THEM TO PERFORM. PUTTING COLOUR TO IMPERIALISM.

    THEIR INITATIVE IS TOO RESTRICTED AND FADE AWAY IN THE SYSTEM AS A BUNCH OF WOMEN WHO HAVE LITTLE TOLERANCE FOR WOMEN WHO DONT CONFORM TO THE SYSTEM AS THEY DO.

    I HOPE THEY CAN TAKE THEIRS CRITICS AS A SOUND TO RISE UP AGAINST BEING AGENTS FOR A PASSIVE SOCIETY…NO ENERGY FOR SUSTAINABLE CHANGE.

    KEEP TALKING AND CELEBRATING ANNIVERSARIES WHILE THE SOCIETY IS REELING INTO DECADENCE.
