Opposition Senator says MPs should call out violence where they see it

Opposition Senator Donna Scott-Mottley says as the country seeks to end violence against women and children, Members of Parliament should not hesitate to call out violence, where they see it.

She made the statement in the Senate on Friday,-which was observed as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence, Against Women and Children.

Senator Scott-Mottley said parliamentarians should be fair in standing against all types of violence against women.

She criticized the actions taken by the government, in relation to the domestic violence allegations surrounding independent Member of Parliament George Wright.

She said before one can be forgiven, they must first admit and ask for forgiveness.

Senator Scott-Mottley described the recent crossing of the floor by two female parliamentarians, in what would appear to be their support of Mr. Wright, as interesting.
