Samoa PM gets backing over women comment
18-12-2014 - RNZI.

At the final sitting of Parliament for the year, Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi told women thinking of running for parliament that they should not neglect their families.

Tuilaepa said the government had devised a way to bring more women into Parliament but he hopes that in their quest to become MPs, they will not neglect their God-given duties as mothers.

The Executive Director of Women in Business Samoa, Adimaimalaga Tafuna'i, says she takes these comments well, and women in Samoa are being given many opportunities, including within government.
