Some remarkable Caribbean women will have the floor at the 12th AWID International Forum in Turkey this month: Some important discussions that will help us all come to a better understanding of contemporary issues that impact the lives of women in the Caribbean. Wish I could’ve been there. Best Wishes Sisters!
Caribbean women will take center stage during two engaging sessions which bring the region’s challenges and its change-agents into sharp focus. The Haitian Women’s Solidarity Roundtable will explore sexual exploitation and violence against women and girls in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake. Jocie Philistin, a Haitian leader, will share KOFAVIV’s work addressing survivors’ needs and explain how international solidarity is possible. “Krik? Krak!: dem cyant break we back” Narratives of Challenge and Change from the Caribbean brings together a diverse group of women from across the region for a lively conversation on security and women’s economic empowerment in the Caribbean, linking these issues to sexual citizenship and regional feminist movement-building.
