Gendered Resistance: Caribbean Slave Women’s Sexualities as Modes of Resistance

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In the lives of Caribbean slave women, gender and sexuality shaped the ways in which they were punished and controlled by slave masters and overseers; consequently gender and sexuality influenced their modes of resistance. This research aims to focus on the ways in which Caribbean slave women’s gender and sexualities functioned as forms of resistance to institutional oppression. In conclusion, this research draws parallels of Caribbean slave women’s resistance to those of women within the modern African Diaspora and explores the prospects of illustrating the similarities of modern social oppressions to the oppression of slavery.
