November 26, 2014:As National Women’s Week continues, we talk with the Bureau of Women’s Affairs about this year’s theme, “Equality for Women is Progress for All”, and their role in the fight for women’s rights and equality in The Bahamas.
With today being the 52nd Anniversary of women voting for the first time in this country, Christine Campbell (pictured 2nd front right) and Lynn Symonette (2nd from left) tell us about this week’s planned events in New Providence, Grand Bahama, Abaco and Eleuthera. They also tell us about the “Women’s Symposium” set for Saturday, November 29, with speakers including Cabinet Minister Glenys Hanna Martin and former Opposition Leader Loretta Butler Turner.
