Kaieteur News – September 30, 2005

The Ministry of Labour, Human Services and Social Security yesterday re-launched its quarterly newsletter during a simple ceremony at their Documentation Centre for Gender and Development.

The magazine ‘Woman Powah’- promoting gender and development – includes an insight into Justice Desiree Bernard’s appointment to the Caribbean Court of Justice and her views on Gender Equity, a feature called ‘Walking in My Mother’s Footsteps’ by Dr. Joycelin Massiah on the impact of her late mother, Olga Byrne, on her life and work.

In an address at the re-launching, Minister Bibi Shadick said she was heartened by the reappearance of ‘Woman Powah’, and hopes that there would be no recurrence of such a situation.

The Minister also stated that ‘Woman Powah’ has a role to play in keeping women informed, and by so doing creating that awareness which is required for moving Guyana towards its goal of gender equity.
