Rose-Marie Belle Antoine knocks it out of the park with new article on intersectionality and gender discrimination in the Caribbean

The inaugural issue of the University of Oxford Human Rights Hub Journal is out - and readers will
not be disappointed.

The first gem in this treasure trove is the excellent article by Professor Rose-Marie Belle Antoine, An Intersectional Approach to Addressing Gender and Other Forms of Discrimination in Labour in the Commonwealth Caribbean. This article analyzes the intersection of race and gender in discrimination against women in multi-ethnic societies in Trinidad and Tobago and other Caribbean nations.

Nothing is left out. Every axis is explored - not just racial divides and how they amplify gender discrimination, but how urban-rural divides, internal acceptance of external gender and racial identities, inadequate child care, and national laws, regional trade frameworks, and international economic trends all impact and keep women in poverty.

If you are interested in any of these topics, you should race to the Oxford Human Rights Hub website and download and read this article immediately.
