" While remembering can enable us to historicize contemporary exclusions and recognize our own 'implicatedness,' it can also serve a more hopeful purpose. If we start with the gendered lives and survival strategies of women and men, their uneven circulation and mobility stitch the Caribbean together in ways that make it impossible to insist on seperability over connection. The fact that earlier migration patterns tend to be heavily male, should not distract us from thinking about where the women went and what they did. "
