A Woman's Place - Short Stories Series
The Alarm Rings Softly

Caribbean women use drama and reggae to fight domestic violence.

A printer-friendly version of this page 12 minutes
Directed by Judith Laird
Produced by Jel Productions with TVE

In the Caribbean, women subjected to violence from their partners as a result of substance abuse often felt they had no right to appeal to the law. Low self-esteem and the feeling that it was somehow their fault left them trapped in a cycle of dependency and guilt. But a new generation of women is using drama and reggae to focus attention on a once taboo subject.

Other titles in the series are:

Teach a Woman How to Fish and... - Sea farming empowers women in Fiji.

Dry Days In Dobbagunta - Literacy program spurs anti-liquor campaign in rural India and empowers women.

A Healthy Start - The debate over women's health care in South Africa.

The Amahs of Hong Kong - Filipino women exploited as maids in Hong Kong.

Footprints of Sorrow - Guatemalan war widows fighting for human rights.
