Senator Taylor Lauds Southeastern Women
Ballah M. Kollie, LINA

MONROVIA, April 4 (LINA) –Bong County Senator Jewel Howard Taylor has ended a tour of the Southeastern Region with an applause for women in that part of the country.

Senator Taylor, in an interview climaxing the tour Sunday, described the trip as successful and rewarding based on the turnouts, commitments and responses to her call.

She and her delegation toured the Southeast with the aim of awakening the consciousness of women and youth to rise up to the call for them to fully participate in the political governance of the country.

She also admonished them to support the education of their children, particularly girls, noting, “When you educate a girl child, you educate a nation but the boys education is for the home.”

The Bong County lawmaker began the tour with an interactive engagement with students of the Tubman University during which she narrated the inspirational story of her life to students of the Tubman University that was established in 2009 by an Act of the Legislature, following which she held discussions with the rural women.

During her tour of Maryland, Grand Kru, Sinoe and Rivercess counties, Senator Taylor told women about the need for them to support each other in political and other undertakings as women were tired of walking behind their male counterparts, and would henceforth walk side-by-side with them.

She, however, stressed that the campaign for women emancipation is never possible without the support of men and therefore called on women to engage their husbands to support their political quest.

Senator Taylor took similar a message to the women and men of Grand Kru, Sinoe and Rivercess counties.

She also held discussions with members and county leaderships of the National Patriotic Party residing in that part of the country.

On the Senator's delegation during her weeklong trip were former Representative Regina Sokan Teah, Wayfa Florence Ciapha and Grace Scoland Briamah and a host of her office staff.

The tour was a personal initiative of the Bong County lawmaker.
