Barbara Blake, Jamaican Writer and Media Specialist

Each vignette is concise and well written, with just enough material to interest the reader without being tedious. It is an easy read, the photographs and artwork are eye-catching and the style is flowing and informative. The Jamaican Woman is indeed a celebration, not only of the talented women depicted but of the author Joanne Simpson, whose own talents are ably showcased.” Andrea Walcott, Jamaican writer, Miami

“Joanne Simpson has presented women and men everywhere a comprehensive look at Jamaican women in all their glory. Women in Jamaica have always played critical roles in the development of our country and recognize only too well how all aspects of our lives are linked.
