The government’s weekly programme, “Working For You”, on March 06, hosted a lively discussion on the role of women in the workplace and their significant unwaged contributions to society.Mrs. Ingrid Charles-Gumbs, Former Director of Gender Affairs, said women are still positioned at the lower end of the labour market in a number of territories.
“Women are nurses, social workers, teachers…a lot of areas in which women are positioned in large numbers are areas in which salaries are not great,” she said, adding that there needs to be more encouragement for women to join more profitable fields such as engineering and surgical care that will “help them to move up economically.”
