It is very much the talk of the town that a woman was turned away from registering because too much of her breasts was showing. The Minister of Transport Glenys Hanna Martin continues the public commentary:
It is outrageous that women are being turned away from exercising a fundamental right reportedly because of the way they are dressed.
This is beyond unacceptable and cannot be tolerated.
The Parliamentary Commissioner must immediately direct his staff to respect the fundamental rights of women as they seek to exercise the franchise: A right that women heroically and courageously fought for and will not be easing up on any time soon.
