Abstract

Chapter 7 of the book "Gendered Realities: Essays in Caribbean Feminist Thought" is presented. It discusses some of the issues on women and gender in the history of English-speaking Caribbean found in Lucille Mathurin Mair's dissertation and Verene Shepherd's collection of essays on the subject. The author traces women history and gender history through the slavery era and postslavery era. The chapter shows that there are gaps in the understanding of women's lives and gender systems in some periods of Jamaica's history. [Ebsco]
