The National Organization of Women has congratulated the first female Prime Minister of Barbados, Mia Mottley.

President Avelyn Christie also congratulated newcomers Dr Sonia Browne, Sandra Husbands and Marsha Caddle on their victories, noting their election added more females to service at one of the highest levels in Barbados.

The re-election of Santia Bradshaw and Cynthia Forde means there will be six women in the House of Assembly.

“The platforms of both parties in the campaign period revealed the deep work that still needs to be done in terms of perceptions about woman and womanhood. 

Hopefully, under this new dispensation, we can have some of the frank and necessary national conversations needed to further enhance the lives of women and girls living in Barbados.  The National Organization of Women remains committed to service and advocacy for women and girls in Barbados,” Christie said in a release.
