PNP General Secretary, Paul Burke, says the party is guilty of mistreating its female members.

Mr. Burke was speaking on Sunday at the 43rd Annual Conference of the PNP’s Women’s Movement. He says it’s time to end the discrimination of women in politics.

Burke called on the PNP to not just look at women as “ornamentals.”

Mr. Burke says a lack of gender equality in the PNP has resulted in a high attrition rate among its members who are young women.
