It shows the solidarity in Caribbean sisterhood as the women rise above past oppression.
Set against a backdrop of shifting policies and diminishing resources for widening participation and adult learning, this book acknowledges the global challenge of an ageing society and shows how provision of informal learning enriches lives.
