Governor & Tara Rivers.jpg(CNS): Members of the Business and Professional’s Women’s (BPW) Club gathered with guests in celebration at Government House on Thursday, 27 June, at a reception hosted by Governor Duncan Taylor. The club, which is to mark its 40th anniversary in the Cayman Islands in a couple of years, is a major non-governmental organisation advising government, particularly on women’s and gender affairs, according to a GIS release. Celebrations on Thursday centred around the Annie Huldah Bodden lecture by Laura Bates, who, at 26, has already carved a name for herself globally, dealing with women’s issues. Bates is the founder of the Everyday Sexism Project, which chronicles the gender inequality experiences of over 10,000 women.

Local activist Joannah Bodden-Small was also recognised with a certificate for earning international BPW accolades, for her push to establish gender equality legislation in the Cayman Islands.
