DAT’s Public Relations Officer and Women’s Committee Member- Ms. Juanita Carbon
The Status of Women’s Committee of the Dominica Association of Teachers strongly condemns the recent acts of violence committed against women in the Portsmouth area.
69 year old Daisy Christmas and 34 year old Gloria Celestine lost their lives as a result. A Ross University School of Medicine student was sexually assaulted.
There can be no justification for such acts and the DAT will speak out against such. I am calling on all women who have been or are being abused to speak out. Find a trusted friend or co- worker to speak to. I am also calling on the men to speak out against it. Men must tell each other that ‘Real Men’ do not abuse or ill treat women. Let us stop this violence once and for all.
