The Dominica National Council of Women (DNCW) has commended the efforts of Tasha ‘Tasha P” Peltier who became the first woman in 54 years to win the Calypso Monarch title.
‘Tasha P” also became the first calypso artiste to win three titles in one season
President of the DNCW Josephine Dublin Prince believes Tasha P’s song “Woman Time” should be used as an anthem for the women’s movement in Dominica.
“She has used her talent to convey to all of us that women have been there historically and the voices of women were not heard until now,” she said.
Dublin Prince said women play an important role in nation building.
“I want to congratulate her for this historic approach. This history in making because after 54 years a woman can become the calypso monarch. It says a lot about women too, that if they are given an opportunity, they too can step up to the plate just like men,” she said. “Tasha P’s victory should be seen as a victory for women in Dominica.”
