Praise for Soroptomist International from MP

Minister of People Empowerment, Cynthia Forde, has heaped praise on Soroptomist International for its efforts to empower and advocate for women.

The Minister made the comments during Soroptomist International Caribbean Network’s 25th Biennial Conference.

She says despite tremendous strides in a number of areas, women and girls continue to face many challenges including poverty and domestic violence.

Minister Forde notes the advent of the technological age, climate change and economic crises have brought with them new issues, which if not properly addressed can reverse progress to date.
