Dr Daniel-Hodge’s entrance into the political sphere is one of the latest indications of the ongoing political evolution in St. Kitts-Nevis, particularly where we women are concerned. Indeed, more of us are boldly stepping forward to serve our country from front stage.
This is a historic moment for Nevisians and Kittitians alike because for the first time in our country’s history, a woman has been elected to lead a political party. It warms my heart to see that our people are now actioning the first steps toward gender equity on one of the most important social levels. This stands as testimony that we have grown and are continuing to grow as a people, both individually and collectively.
Congratulations on your newly attained post, Dr Daniel-Hodge! I look forward to your contributions to our political arena.”
