Woman : Her Own Worst Enemy

By Janet Jones

Trinidad and Tobago, 1987. This 61 page hard backed book has been written based on the author's own impressions she believes have affected and afflicted ( and still do affect and afflict ) the Trinidad and Tobago woman , the Caribbean woman , the West Indian woman and woman in other countries all over the world. While the opinions in this book are the authors own , as a woman she does not pretend , but feels more at ease by allowing the woman to see herself in the given society , how they performed over a period of time , how she was and is able to overcome during a period of time. What in fact did happen to her ; where , how and why did it happen.Who or what caused her suffering , embarrassment , humiliation and shame and why. ---- In this book the author has listed her own impressions in alphabetical order and the topics covered are for discussion and debate or personal reading. ----- This may have been the author's own book as her signature is across the corner of the inner front board, and dated in the style of someone who owns a book , rather than on the title page. --- Dark breen boards with mother and daughter drawn in silhouette form by artist Malcolm 'Malo ' Matthews - ( it says - well-known artist and sign-painter ) The original price seems to be in pencil of £28.75 but I could not find another copy for comparison.. Signed by Author. Second Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. Illus. by Malcolm Malo Matthews. Women's Studies.
