He added, “We wish that all will shamelessly praise and celebrate their leadership qualities and use it as a tool to shape our country’s promising future. Development is taking place throughout the length and breadth of the island and I encourage all young women to be part of the new St. Lucia.”

According to the Mayor, “Every year, International Women’s Day not only provides an opportunity to reflect on the innumerable political, societal, and economic contributions and accomplishments, but also to address real issues the women in our communities, country, workplaces and in our lives are confronted with.”

“I know that St. Lucia’s young women are up to the job”, added Mayor Francis, adding: “You need to recognize your full potential as citizens and take the lead in obtaining roles in government and the private sector.”

According to the Mayor, “I serve alongside some dedicated female councilors and some of our team of managers living proof that women continue to make important, lasting and positive inroads in society.

“Look within our 238 square miles and you will find strong women making significant inroads at all levels.”
