CARICOM congratulates Barbados for ‘shattering glass ceiling’ and having all the highest positions of government occupied by women

Posted: Thursday, January 27, 2022. 10:45 pm CST.

By Benjamin Flowers: Barbados is leading the regional charge for women in politics and government, with all posts at the highest level of government in the country occupied by women. This week, the Caribbean Community, whose Secretary-General is a woman, Belize’s own Dr. Carla Barnett, congratulated Barbados for this accomplishment.

“Barbados shatters the glass ceiling President, Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister. All strong women. CARICOM is proud!” CARICOM said on its official Facebook page.

The current President of Barbados is H.E. Sandra Mason, who served as the country’s last Governor-General before the country removed the Queen of England as the Head of State on November 30, 2021, and officially became a republic.

The Prime Minister of Barbados is Mia Mottley, who lead the Barbados Labour Party to a spectacular victory in the January 19 General Elections, capturing all 30 seats in parliament, and effectively doing away with the country’s opposition for the entirety of her term.

Mottley is being backed up by Deputy Prime Minister Santia Bradshaw, who also serves as the country’s Minister of Transport, Works, and Water Resources, as well as the leader of government business in the House of Assembly and senior minister responsible for infrastructure.
