My September 20th, 2017 letter to PM


This is one of the letters which I have written to
Prime Minister Rowley over the past
5 years.

Dear Hon. Prime Minister

I refer to your ‘Message on the Occasion of International Women’s Day 2017’ 

(http://www.opm.gov.tt/pms-message-on-the-occasion-of-international-womens-day-2017/ ) in which you said: ‘The Gender and Child Affairs Division of the Office of the Prime Minister remains focused on facilitating gender equity and equality by developing policies that promote the equal advancement of women and men.” 

In light of your statement, I am asking our Government to urgently develop a policy to provide free feminine hygiene products for low income women and girls. 

The City of Aberdeen in Scotland recently made these items free for low income women and girls, with very positive results. You can ask your wife and daughters about the cost of feminine products in our supermarkets and pharmacies .. they are not only expensive, but prohibitively so for many women and girls. Many of our girls miss days of school each month, as they cannot afford these essential products.  

Please live your words, and do something positive for the women and girls of our nation.

Thank you

Yours for our country!
