Description

"... provides a Caribbean feminist perspective, seldom heard, which combines scholastic knowledge with personal experiences and can certainly stimulate further research..." -Feminist Collections"Scholars concerned with questions of identity, autonomy, the future as well as the past in the Caribbean will be significantly informed by the essays included.... a collection sure to generate discussion on a wide variety of important topics." -H-Net Book Review"This exciting volume has more focus and wider scope than previous similar collections and is of considerable worth both for generalists and specialists." -Choice"This is a compelling anthology of essays by 13 feminist scholars in a variety of disciplines who expertly analyze varied forces of Caribbean women's complex lives.... The volume makes an important contribution to both Caribbean studies and feminist theory, and it would be a very useful resource for Women's Studies courses with an international focus. Recommended for all libraries." -MultiCultural ReviewFeminist scholars in anthropology, sociology, law, health sciences, literature, and cultural studies focus on issues of direct importance to Caribbean women: interregional immigrant female labor, the interplay of race and gender in the construction of national cultures, the impact of developmental policies on women's lives, and women's roles in providing cultural continuity in exile communities.show more
