Book Description

THIS ENGAGING PUBLICATION is a pioneering work on the experiences of Grenadian women over two centuries of British colonialism, "Gairyism" and socialist revolution. It moves away from a narrow approach of highlighting outstanding figures to one that presents the experiences of women of all walks of life and portrays Grenadian society through the eyes of women estate workers, domestics, teachers, civil servants, doctors, lawyers, revolutionaries and politicians. It captures in riveting detail the story of Grenadian women in its richness and complexity.

Extensive use of primary sources, estate records, Colonial Office correspondence, church records and oral interviews provide a wealth of information about mortality, health and education, social relations, and economic realities over two hundred years.
