Summary
"Women in Caribbean History is a first attempt to pull together the scattered material on women from the secondary sources into one place with the aim of providing students, teachers and the general reader with easily accessible information on Caribbean women of diverse ethnic origins." "This introductory text attempts to respond to the need to project a more positive image of Caribbean women and to counter the stereotypes and negative images presented by early colonisers and settlers, and the writings of European planters, missionaries and travellers to the Caribbean."--BOOK JACKET
