Abstract

Chapter 10 of the book "Centering Woman: Gender Discourses in Caribbean Slave Society," by Hilary McD. Beckles is presented. It explores Caribbean women slaves' methods of negotiating terms of personal freedom with their owners. It discusses studies which claim that women slaves were rarely active in slave revolts and assertions that they often opt for indirect forms of protest. It also analyzes the differences between men and women slaves' response to their enslavement. [Ebsco]
