A description of a pilot project to integrate women in Rose Hall, St. Vincent, Barbados into rural development. The book details the process whereby the women chose their own path to development. Their successful activities include creating adult education and pre-school programs and building a community center, illustrating how women in Rose Hall “do” development through their leadership and vision for their community’s development. By addressing important theoretical and practical implications of the project, this book makes a valuable contribution to the women in development discourse.
