Nike NFL Jerseys China in the National Assembly

More than forty years after the introduction of a state paper on women’s equality, in the National Assembly, Guyana has labored in the vineyard nationally. Yet to date the achievement of women’s equality has not been realized.This revelation was underscored by President David Granger during a recent television appearance. President Granger made it clear that the idea of a woman being limited to secretarial jobs while a man does ‘a man’s job’ is the old way of thinking.To date, even as the absence of equality among the sexes remains an issue the world over, all being equal, more balance at all levels may be realized locally and while it has not gone away completely Government is working to change that status.President Granger said that Guyana is now at the investigative phase but over the next five years during the tenure of his APNU+AFC Government’s term in office the objective will be to ensure that there is greater equality or the removal of inequality.There has been a raft of legislation to prevent discrimination and abuse and to allow for women to be given equal rights not enjoyed before,China Jerseys, yet admittedly it remains a work in progress locally.“There has been a shortage of achievement; we have to investigate why we have not achieved those targets set some 42 years ago.  These include the number of women in businesses and government positions. If there are any impediments, Government needs to remove those.”Citing examples the President said,Jerseys NFL Wholesale, “If for example there are too few women in science we have to look at the schools curricula to see if there is any disincentive preventing women from going into science… That is the way we intend to tackle it.”The President said that equality from his understanding means that if a male can go into school and get the best science education,cheap nfl jerseys, a female must be able to get it too,Jerseys NFL Wholesale, and that if two people apply for a job- the female must not be discriminated against.He pointed to equality as an important element to social cohesion as was stated at the recently held round table on social cohesion.“In Guyana it is not just a matter of ethnic cohesion between Africans and Indians; it’s also a matter of geographical cohesion of the coastland and hinterland and also a matter of gender.“We must not discriminate against women and we also must not against our girl children.”Admitting that ‘numbers don’t lie’ President Granger,China Jerseys Cheap, added that his administration can be accused of not having enough senior female Ministers in the Cabinet but this,Wholesale NFL Jerseys China, he said, can be explained.“We have tried to get a mixture of experience and balance. In terms of experience we came into Government and we are faced with some very severe challenges such as the sugar industry and our borders in terms of our relations with Suriname and Venezuela.  There are some areas which call for experience and quite frankly there were not sufficient experienced women in some of those areas.”He added that as a coalition government he did not interfere with the nominees of the coalition partners whom he said must be prepared to ensure that their nominations are balanced.Though not casting blame, the President said, “If all coalition parties provide balanced lists then we would have a balanced national assembly and a balanced Cabinet.”The President also said that the reality of taking office was that he still does not feel that there are enough youths or women. “But we tried to create a stratum of Ministers within Ministries, who will serve to under study seniors and eventually we would get the balance right.”
