The Caribbean Review of Gender Studies (CRGS)

The CRGS was the first online journal of The University of the West Indies, launched in 2007. It is open access. The CRGS stimulates cross-cultural exchanges among Caribbean peoples within the region, those in the Caribbean Diaspora, as well as those who bring a comparative perspective to bear on Caribbean gender and feminist concerns. The journal is established around an identity and voice emanating from Caribbean realities of power in gender, sexualities, ethnicity and class relations, and their effects. The journal welcomes critical disciplinary or multi-disciplinary scholarly articles and creative contributions that broaden networks and enhance the global understanding and reach of Caribbean feminist theory and praxis.
