FRANKLIN PARK, NJ – When it comes to highlighting the best in women, voices will no longer be silenced. The Women’s Empowerment Luncheon took place March 8 in Anguilla, BWI with keynote speaker Life Transformation Specialist Tina C. Hines. Women throughout the Caribbean gathered together this past Sunday, at the CuisinArt Golf Resort and Spa, as Tina had a message for those striving for more.
“This message is for you, the woman who wakes up every day and with ease meets the needs of others. You, the woman who feels pain within but somehow manages to greet everyone with a smile. You, the woman who receives little in return but often gives her last. And you, the woman who makes it happen,” said Hines.
In conjunction with the Gender Affairs Unit, the Women’s Empowerment Luncheon in recognition of International Women’s day featured keynote speaker Hines, along with several experts in the fields of hospitality, health and spiritual well-being. The day culminated a weekend gala of International Women’s Month, where Hines addressed attendees, which included 15 honorees, Radio Anguilla and Anguilla Governor Christine Scott.
International Women’s Day 2015’s theme, Make it Happen, signifies an ideal time to remind the world of how successful women can be. Although women are graduating college faster than men, it is estimated that women still earn just over 75 cents for every U.S. dollar that men earn. This is an international issue as well: According to Caribbean household surveys, only 33 percent of the “better-paid professional jobs” in the region — which include architecture, law or engineering — are held by women. The wage gap between these women and their male counterparts is an astounding 58 percent on average. (Source:Inter-America Development Bank)
