The Caribbean Policy Development Centre, in collaboration with the Institute for Gender and Development Studies: Nita Barrow Unit and the Office of Recruitment and Marketing, University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus have partnered on a project titled Preserving the Legacy of Caribbean Women.

 

This multimedia project comprises a series of recorded interviews with women from Barbados and the wider Caribbean speaking candidly about their work in the areas of education, community development, healthcare, development work and politics. Thus, Preserving the Legacy of Caribbean Women aims to preserve and highlight the legacy of women in the Caribbean who have made significant contributions to society, while also ensuring the oral history of Caribbean women is retained for the benefit of future generations. The recorded interviews will be telecast on the University of the West Indies TV (UWI TV) as a series titled Voices of Women; throughout the Caribbean region and the diaspora.
