Who was she?
A former Prime Minister of Dominica
Best known as…
The ‘Iron Lady’ of the Caribbean.
Her political career earned her the distinction of being the world’s longest continuously-serving female Prime Minister, third longest-serving female Prime Minister and Dominica’s first-ever female lawyer.
Why she was a Caribbean Catalyst of change:
She showed exemplary courage and will to succeed in two of the fields still dominated by men: law and politics. Dame Eugenia persevered despite two coup d’etat attempts, and was a formidable force as the Chairperson of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States.
