Do you think that some of the social issues that we face in the Caribbean will improve if we fail to encourage our young girls to be confident and speak up?
In this talk, Dr Crystal A. deGregory, a native of Bahamas, challenges listeners to teach and tell young girls in the Caribbean that great women embrace “enoughness” and that they can “talk back.”[embedplusvideo height=”429″ width=”710″ editlink=”http://bit.ly/1SHmWkg” standard=”http://www.youtube.com/v/OtUMrEoVwO4?fs=1&start=6&vq=hd720″ vars=”ytid=OtUMrEoVwO4&width=710&height=429&start=6&stop=&rs=w&hd=1&autoplay=0&react=1&chapters=¬es=” id=”ep4052″ /]
I hope this will at least help to change the way we encourage and treat young girls in the Caribbean.
