Jewel Levy – Cayman Compass – Monday, 07 April 2014 (originally published 31 Mar)
Glenda P. Simms, a longtime advocate for women’s rights and a motivational speaker from Jamaica, told it “like it is” to Cayman women – and a few men – at the islands’ first National Conference on Women on Saturday.
As a keynote speaker on the topic “How can we become architects of change,” Ms. Simms addressed a packed ballroom at the Westin resort.
On her first visit to Cayman, she said she was here to tell the women of the Cayman Islands that they have the right to be free and the right to gender equality and empowerment . . .
