Quotes

" Feminists must position themselves within a space that questions the compulsory heterosexuality promoted by Church and nation-state, which undermines economic and social gains women have made. We must question the extent to which gains that women have made exist within a heterosexist matrix in which women's sexed bodies are used and reused. Finally, we must ask whether the fight should be for equality between genders, or for a destruction of sexual and gender categories all together. The women's movement in the Caribbean must question whether or not the rights they hold so dear, are rights that actually maintain and reinforce colonial constructions of woman and man."
When the Closet is a Region- Homophobia, Heterosexism and Nationalism in the Caribbean, Tara Atluri
