This is viewer supported news

Violence against women has been growing markedly in the Caribbean in recent years.

Long recognized as a tolerant and multi-cultural society where Afro-Trinidadian and Indo-Trinidadians of three main religious faiths — Islam, Christianity and Hinduism — have lived together peacefully, Trinidad has been rocked in recent years by a stunning increase in the brutal rapes and murders against women.

Guest:

  • Rhodda Rheddock, the head of the Center for Gender and Development Studies at the University of West Indies in Trinidad. She is also the author of ??Women, Labor and Politics in Trinidad and ??Tobago and is active in the women’s movement.
