The atmosphere was electric and the presentations terrific as the spouses in the Guyanese Diaspora paid strict attention to the The International Women’s Movement and their can do attitude in New York over the weekend.

Both Ms Sandra Granger, wife of President David Granger and Ms Sita Nagamootoo, wife of Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo were on hand for the annual event held this year at the Glen Terrace in Brooklyn.

This year several Spouses were given awards.  Here are some of the names: Beryl James; Samantha Dow- Hankerson; Kevin Smith; Trevlyn Headley; Kaeli Ferguson; Oswald Bobb; Ewrin Edwards (Flantis).

The long and short of the discussion on the side lines is that more than 60 percent of spouses of the Cabinet and other executives in Guyana have their spouses and families living overseas especially in North America.

Another solid and critical fact is that in this season of unequal pay, minority women especially are paid fifty seven cents to the dollar while their white counterparts get seventy nine cents, and with a Guyana pay check it is difficult for Cabinet and executives to support their families in North America…….Hence a propensity for graft and greed.

From all indications and observations the temptations to grab money and favours is influenced by the distance of families from their home base.  At another level depression and similar psycho-social problems are treatable diseases and spouses are always first to pick up on these maladies. And as the old Guyanese maxim goes “ One hand can’t clap, and one hand can’t clean fish, and one hand can’t grate coconut”.
