Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) vice presidential candidate Jennifer Wang
(王如玄) yesterday said that Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) has done nothing for women.
At a Hsinchu County public forum with representatives from several women’s organizations, Wang said that while she and Tsai were both female candidates in the Jan. 16 presidential and legislative elections, they were different from each other.
“Ever since I was in college, I have endeavored to improve women’s rights. On the contrary, Tsai has never done anything to protect and take care of women, whether it was when she worked in the private sector or served as minister of the Mainland Affairs Council or as vice premier,” Wang said.
“Tsai has done nothing, if you think back,” said Wang, a lawyer who has portrayed herself as a staunch advocate of gender equality and a voice against domestic violence and sexual harassment at work. [FULL STORY]
