Women's Party

Women are far out-numbered, neglected and ignored for so long. The long absence of women in the solomon's legislature may have been our demise given our political instability in recent years.

While I appreciate the effort by the women party formation as a direct response to our male dominating rule, I find it hard to think, for argument's sake that if I wish to affiliate to this party, I may not be eligible as I am a man. Wouldn't that be prejudice?

And how would the party convinces Human Rights Commission that their employment regulations are compliant with Equal Employment Opportunities (EEO) given all of its existing and would be employees are women?

Perhaps mi stap long time away lo home and start think alien to our norm.

Have a good day.

Will..
