Unfair attack on PM Rowley
Several years ago one of the pioneers of women in calypso, Singing Francine, had a hit called, Run Away, Run Away, in which she said, "Dog could run away, cat could run away, you could run away too."
He simply said that there comes a time when a woman must recognise that she is in a deleterious relationship and should get out. That is not a guarantee that she will be safe-there is a need for greater support from the state. But many women have exited such situations and gone on to make good lives for themselves and their children.
What he was saying is that this is the first, and perhaps most critical step to protect yourself.
There is simply no justification for the vilification poured on him by people with an axe to grind and whose attacks should be looked at suspiciously.
Any fair examination of his statement will satisfy the objective observer of his intent.
