Abstract

An analysis of slave women's position in the British, Dutch, French, Spanish, and Danish Colonies of the West Indies, from 1600 through the 1800s. Morrissey (sociology, U. of Toledo) focuses particular attention on slave women's work at home, in the fields, and as domestics; pregnancies, births, and women's general health; family organization and incentives for building kinship networks; and white attitudes toward women slaves as mothers and as workers.
