DIARY OF A MOTHERING WORKER
If I were Prime Minister, I
would fearlessly challenge sexism
Ending both would improve life
for everyone, regardless of your
sex or sexuality. This is because
sexism and homophobia ultimately
harm both women and men, both
gay folk and straight. These are
not minority or special interest
issues, these are issues of human
rights and equality for all. And,
either you are for equality for all
or you are not for equality at all.
In the Caribbean, where our his-
torical struggle has precisely been
about emancipation, a politics
committed to this for all should
be the first basis for constituency,
community and nation-building.
Get my full pitch on YouTube.
Just type my name and PM, yes,
for Prime Minister. If you think
you are not hurt by sexism and
homophobia or even if you just
don t want to be treated unequally,
you might be interested in
Caribbean advocacy that bring sta-
tistics, legislative review, stories,
quotes and performance poetry.
The slide background was the
logo for the student feminist group,
Consciousness Raising, which was
active from 2007-2009 and was
the first group to come out of my
women s studies class.
They held campus marches for
two years for International
Women s Day and International
Day Against Violence for Women.
The words in their logo are "sol-
idarity," "freedom," "take action"
The students I quoted in my
talk have also formed groups such
as Support for Change, in 2011, to
advocate for the national gender
They run Facebook discussion
safe spaces like Womantra. They start
campaigns of all kinds such as a Port-
of-Spain and UWI Slutwalk action to
show that women s sexuality in no way
They are involved in creating safe
spaces on the UWI campus for LGBT
These students are also active in the
Institute for Gender and Development
Studies-led Break the Silence campaign
to end child sexual abuse and incest.
Rock on, UWI youth!
Viewers will also see my Introduction
to Women s Studies class of 2013.
This is the seventh year that my male
and female students have done popular
actions on women s rights, in a course
first taught in 1982.
Students this year were open-mind-
ed, thoughtful and courageous about
engaging in such movement-building.
Those faces are a Caribbean feminist
generation nurtured in our own uni-
For those in the field of Caribbean
feminist academia and activism, there
is lively debate about whether to use
words like "equality" or "equity," or
even "transformation," also whether to
use "homophobia," which actually mis-
represents the issue but is at least com-
monly known, or whether to use "het-
erosexism." Regardless, I hope the
message is clear.
For Mrs Persad-Bissessar s Cabinet,
which has buried the National Gender
Policy and passed a discriminatory
Children s Act (2012), it s a must-see.
For the PNM, which remains a deeply
homophobic party, clueless to the
implications for even heterosexual boys
and men, it s also necessary.
If you have homophobic religious
beliefs, or you care about children, the
economy and creating safe communi-
ties, watch it with an eye to the lead-
ership that I think we need beyond
There is a lot of talk in the country,
not all of it constructive. The TEDx
Port-of-Spain 2013 event featured an
inspiring line-up of speakers, including
Etienne Charles, Attillah Springer,
Wayne Kublalsingh, Rondel Benjamin
and Keegan Taylor, Stacy-Marie Ish-
mael, Fr Clyde Harvey, Erle Rahaman-
Noronha, Debrah Lewis and Dominique
All the talks are on YouTube. There
are also past talks by Sunity Maharaj,
Verna St Rose Greaves, Christopher
Laird of Gayelle and others. Google
them, sit back and tune in.
Equality is for all
harm both women and
men, both gay folk and
straight. These are not
minority or special
interest issues, these are
issues of human rights
and equality for all. And,
either you are for
equality for all or you are
not for equality at all.
