(Almost every statement made by Labour Ministers these days seems to ._
contradict some other statement made not too long before. I will attempt
to enumerate some of these contradictions.)
31. VWhile the front page of the Labour Party manifesto acknowledges the
fact of Wastage and Corruption in Government, and the Speech from the
Throne list's ,means of curbing waste, in-the; Government, the Freshman
Minister of Finance boasts of Government's :record of sound financial
The. Premier had barely finished chiding the Qpposition for'not coopera-
ting in the House of-Assembly (for not posing with the other side for
a photograph), when he began his typical mepuis-laden, character-ass-
assination contribution to the debate on. the-Throne Speech.
S, A Speaker of the House who has written. numerous articles critical of
colonialism, still .insists on wearing a straw wig and black gown in
the House, and-.proceeds to rule, that a truly liberated member (appro-
priately attired) is improperly dressed (be his shirt-jack bluish-grey,
or grey-blue),. Significantly, the dress rule did not seem to apply to
members of the Governmen" side who even took their oath dressed in
blue. "Afro-styled" shir-t with white, embro.idery, or ,who wore red, lilac
or short-sleeved -shirts.
4i A Minister of Education whor at-d very opportunity speaks of the. need
S for relevant education, and for' revamping the system, speaks, in almost,
the same breath of eradicating teachers who have "different" ideologies.
G. A Minister who talks for the need of discipline, and sits by. amused as
.his leader uses the, House of Assembly for dit-ty, dishonest politicking.
6., A Premier' who not too long ago spoke of a Communist plot to overthrow
his: Government, .publicly connecting several, violent acts '(including
the, murder..of Mr. and Mrs. Bright) to that plot, 'refuses to disclose
his evidence, even after he declares that things are back to normal -
the murder ) is (.are,) large? on the. ground of NationaYi" "
S Security
7. Ministers who a few weeks ago (during their campaigns labelled any
S successful Dominican '14 bourgeois" who must be hated, are lamenting
the fact that the "private sector" (the bourgeois4 of course ) is not
ma-king use of CDB loans (to become: bigger -b.ourgeois to be hated even
more). -
8. Those "bourgeois" who-were painted as the greatest enemies of the little
man by some.Ministers, are now put on a special Committee, to advise
tho-se very Ministers'to pattern policies to improve the lot. of the
little man.
9, A Minister whose campaign pitch was anti-bourgeois, but who appears "o
the House. of Assembly ..desse'd ~in some: of the most expensive and stylish
outfits;. '
10. The Preshman Minister who speaks of eradicating those who send or carry
a bad image of Dominica abroad, but is led by a man who has driven
millions-of dollars off- by lis fabricated but well-published "Communist -
l plot. story. -That same Freeshman Minister tarnished the image of Dominica
at a function qxn the Federal Maple last week, and maybe.he should
eradicate himself.
11. The Minister who measures the success of his Government in the field of
education by the number of schools built, but who then-goes on to admit
that "a. school-building, iS not a school".

Of lOaq6 40Q6


The Womdn's Group of the Dominica Freedopf Party held discussions
on the, observance of 'International Women's Year and found that there.
were several areas in which changes could be made thatwould be of
practical benefit to women and it therefore would be a suitable
manner of observing the year by recommending puchcohaiiges for.
consideration by the National Committee appointed by Government.
The group felt that without detracting from women's role as the
homemaker.and the mother, women had an4 important part to play in
public life for without the intervention of 'woen no true development
could be achieved., The quality of life couldcnot be iUproved unless
the status of women as full partners with men was recognized so that
.women could play an equal part in bringing progress to our shores.
Since women represent m6re than half the population of this island
they must have an equal say. Women must not be relegated solely to
the education of infants, the care of the sick and the welfare of
the poor and needy.
The following heads were noted as requiring some correction:
PROPERTY RIGHTS:. A wife whether she is employed outside the home or
not .must be recognized as having'by her industry assisted in the
provision of the marital home and legislation should be enacted to
ensure that 'there is joint ownership wiith.her-husband of'the marital
home and furnishings, and furniture,
DEPJZTDEnTS PROVISION: Where a husband makes no provision for a
-widow who was dependent on him during his life time, the Courts should
have the power to. make such provision out of his estate and
legislation should be enacted for that purpose.
MAINTENANCE OF CHILDREN & WIFE: Where an order for maintenance has
been made against a man in favour of his wife and/or children, the
amount should-be payable to a Government Department and .arrears
automatically collected by the said department and where possible
deducted from earnings
FAMILY PLANNING: \ The efforts to educate Dominicans in
family- planning should be speeded up and made nation wide
INCOME TAX:. It is noted'-that Government has at last undertaken
.to separate the assessments of husband and wife. It is unfortunate
that unless special provision is made in the legislation it will not
be.made early enough in the year to permit the advantage'to be felt
*in Women's Year
EMPLOYMENT: Having been given equal opportunity in the educational
field it is imp'ortantt that -o hindrance is put in the way of women in
the -pur-sui pf their calling or work. Promotion in the job must
be- s'trictly/merit and ,the sex of the individual must not be
permitted to hamper promotion. .This is applicable both in the
private sector and the public sector.
The authorities and employers must note too that schemes must
be evolved to permit of part-time work for women so that the talents
available in our community' are uilised to the full.
EXTRA MURAL:z SERVICES FOR DROPOUTS: The school drop outs must be
encouraged to attend Extra Mtral classes. This must particularly
apply to girls who have been taken advantage of and who have to leave
school because of pregnancy. Vomen, through their' various
associations must. act as counsellors in advising such girls to
pursue their studies. '
AGE OF CONSENT: The criminal law should be altered to' raise the
age of consent of a woman to carnal knowledge .to 16 years. The Law
enforcement agency should be diligent in prosecuting any male who
is proven to be the father of a child by a mother who conceived
under the age of consent.

Freedom's' View on Women s International Year ii
DUTIES: Women are seen as the'traditional-homemakers, the persons.
concerned with the-rearing of te, young and the persons most suitable
for caring for the sick and aged In these fields there is a great
deal of scope fot women to display their ability and talents in
Dominica. To take but three examples:
Half Day School:. This phenomena is here with us to stay.
It will be for the mothers and the women in the-'commuhity to
organise schemes so that children are fully occupied, away from
mischief and properly overlooked during the half day when their
homes are empty and they are out of school. This can be done from
the'school level, or from neighbourhood groups. But it must be
done and soon.
Home for the Aged: It is hoped that under a .properly
established system the necessity for a great deal of voluntary work
,at the Infirmary will be seen and. undertak-en. An organisation such
as "Friends of'the Aged" qould find a lot to do and would give
fulfilment to women who wish to assist in their community.
Consumer Associations: Though men and women should .be*
equal partners in the concern of housekeeping, it may well be that
women must, take the initiative in organising such associations which
would keep a watch on retail prices, quality of goods'and even
perhaps in small groups do bulk buying to their advantage.
The Dominica freedom Party has written to recommended sources
for assistance in the setting up of a cottage industry in
preservation of food so that the plentiful seasonal crops can be
put up for, the out of season days.
PUBLIC LIFE:; Women must take their rightful place. They must
keep in touch with youth so that they dan appreciate the young
point of view in the political 1-ife of the island. They must keep
themselves and each other informed onthe issues of the day.
SWomen must be prepared to take part in public life by standing
for election.
They must raise the standard of electioneering campaigns so
that the filth and dirt of past elections are not made use of in
the future. '
They must support the candidate who from his/her way of life
indicates that he/she cares .for the welfare of and-.respects his/her
family, his/her community and the island.
These positive suggestions put forward by us, the women, of the
Freedom Party,- come at-a time when .Womens International Year is
being used by Government leaders merely as a platform for political
debate. -
We feel' that when this year is over there must 'exist in Dominica
some definite and concrete evidence that Woment International Year
1975 did in fact better the lot of.the Dominican Woman.
