These remarks on the economic, social, and cultural human rights of women were delivered at a conference on “The Protection of Women.” The conference was organized by the Italian Cultural Institute of New York, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Italy, the Consulate General of Italy in New York, and others as a side event during UN Week 2010. The focus of the conference was on progress toward completion of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) as they impact the status of women. My talk centered on the wisdom and survival strategies of Afro-Caribbean and other transmigrant women in surviving the challenges and abuses of globalization.
