Working With Women Is Difficult “ Sri Lanka's Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa

2013 Jul 12

Women taking the lead sometimes obstructs work in progress, Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa said.
The Speaker made these remarks when the Women’s parliamentary group met at the Parliamentary Complex today under the chairmanship of Minister Sumedha Jayasena.

“This is not something I am saying. When women take the lead there is a tendency to not listen to anyone else. It is like this in a lot of places. It becomes difficult to work. If a woman is in charge of a District Secretariat or Divisional Secretariat or any other high office, they have a tendency to exert their authority over that place. So because of that, sometimes justice is not done,” Speaker Rajapaksa said.
