DOZENS OF CARIBBEAN WOMEN who contributed to the cultural development of the region through song and dance were honoured by the Institute for Gender And Development Studies: Nita Barrow Unit of the University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus recently. The occasion coincided with celebrations on the 101st anniversary of International Women’s Day. The honourees span a period of over 30 years, an era in the region’s musical history that represents the development and rise of a cadre of women who went on to make their mark on the international stage and contributed to the popularity and changing face of Caribbean music.   Read full story in today's MIDWEEK NATION.
