Stand up and ask

Nasik Swami
Saturday, April 05, 2014

SODELPA leader Ro Teimumu Kepa says women must stand up and ask the right questions when new laws and regulations are being made.

Speaking at the party's women council's forum at their Suva office yesterday, Ro Teimumu said the decisions women made were important.

"Women's multiple roles as mothers, nurturers and caregivers can be fully realised and have a very real impact on the lives of our communities when we fully understand the different effects and impact of decrees, policies and regulations on the lives of our families and communities," she said.

"We may shy away from discussions on development issues and concerns and choose to focus only on our traditional roles and responsibilities as expected of our communities."
