A new generation of Caribbean feminists will meet in Barbados for two intense days to strategise on how to collaborate regionally, strengthen feminist voices and initiatives in the region as well as mobilise around key issues like sexual and reproductive health and rights.
It’s not a meeting. It’s a movement.
This is just the beginning for this group which includes members of traditional women’s organisations, regional feminist organisations, LBGT and youth organisations as well as women’s health organisations.
We are social entrepreneurs, peer educators, community activists, volunteers, gender and development professionals, a doctor working on rural women’s health, the coordinator of the young feminist fund, students, teachers, advocates, artists.
We come from Antigua & Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, Trinidad & Tobago.
We recognise the need to reach out further within our own communities and across the other territories of the English, Spanish, French and Dutch-speaking Caribbean.
