In Afro-Caribbean Women & Resistance to Slavery in Barbados, Beckles contends that the parameters of female resistance need to be widened to include areas such as gynecological practices and the manipulation of socio-sexual relations with empowered whites. These “socio-sexual relations” that black women engaged in with white men played a large role in their resistance.[Dawn Michelle Miles, review]
