By BBN Staff: Minister of Defense, John Saldivar, this morning addressed a gathering of women who work within the ministry.
The event was organized as part of International Women’s Month activities under the theme, “Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2010”.
In his remarks, Saldivar stated: “It is really nice to have a special time for women where they are glorified to the point of being honored, awarded and appreciated. I hope this builds awareness and acknowledgement of the woman’s contribution to life, society, family and work; we salute her strength, resilience and sacrifice. Women empowerment lies in honoring yourself and treating yourself with respect. Remember, “No one can put you down without your permission” – Eleanor Roosevelt. For all you have done and continue to do for the Ministry and the Security Forces, Thank You,” he said.
The event was held at the Belize Coast Guard Headquarters near Belize City on the George Price Highway.
Also under Saldivar’s ministerial command are the Belize Defense Force and the Joint Intelligence Operation Centre.
